A flavorful mulled wine recipe flavored with fresh apples, oranges and cranberries. It's the best holiday drink to get in the spirit. The best part is that the Instant Pot makes it easy to put together and keep warm! It's also great served over ice!
Add the apple cider, cloves, cinnamon, star anise, all-spice and peppercorns to the inner bowl of an 8-quart or larger Instant Pot. Lock the lid and make sure the valve is set to seal. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes before manually releasing any residual steam inside.
Carefully open the lid and strain out the spices with a small fine mesh sieve. Stir in the wine, port or brandy, orange slices, apple slices and cranberries. Set the pressure cooker to sauté on low, place the glass lid on and cook, stirring often, until warmed through and just barely simmering, about 15 minutes. You can serve immediately or set the warming button to keep warm until ready to serve.
