Cut the unpeeled apple into 6 segments, discarding the core from each piece. Push 2 of the cloves into the flesh of each segment.
Using a potato peeler remove, in strips, all of the peel from the orange. Cut the piece of ginger in half.
Put the pieces of apple, orange peel, ginger, sugar and cinnamon sticks into a large saucepan with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 15 minutes.
Add the wine and gently reheat, but do not boil again. Strain into a large heatproof serving bowl, floating the apple pieces, cinnamon sticks and some fresh orange slices on the top.
Ladle the warm mulled wine into mugs for serving.
This is a simple recipe that can be prepared in advance by making to the end of point 3, only adding the wine when you are ready to reheat for serving.
Around the bonfire on November 5 or as a welcoming drink for friends and neighbours at Christmas time, mulled wine can be both warming and celebratory.
