My friend first introduced me to mulled wine. I fell in love with it. It took a couple tries to master the recipe. Using just the right amount of spice, you can make an amazing bottle of your very own Christmas wine (that’s what I like to call it).
Imagine it’s Christmas time. And baby it’s cold outside. Sitting by the fire, listening to Christmas music, with a mug in your hand. You take a sip and it warms your throat and deep in your belly.
The aroma of mulled wine, with the spices and citrus are soothing to your soul. You sink down into you seat, and read the first line in a good book.
This recipe contains alcohol. Only continue scrolling if you are of legal drinking age. Drink responsibly.
If you’re interested in making an non-alcoholic version, you can replace the wine with fruit juice instead. Something like cranberry, grape, or blackberry juice is perfect.
Or you can boil down the wine until the alcohol has evaporated. Usually this would be called mulled cider or wassail.
