  • 2 cups of your favorite sweet vermouth
  • 4 cinnamon sticks, cracked
  • 10 cardamom pods, bruised
  • 3 star anise
  • ½ tablespoon whole clove, bruised
  • ½ tablespoon whole allspice, bruised


  • Add vermouth and whole spices to a clean jar and agitate. Make sure the vermouth covers the top of the whole spices.
  • Seal the jar and store in the fridge.
  • Check flavors every 8-12 hours.
  • After 8-12 hours remove the clove. This may vary depending on how fresh your clove spice is.
  • Once the desired flavor profile is reached, strain out the whole spices. I infused for 24 hours.
  • Store the mulled vermouth in the fridge.
