I've been really enjoying hot beverages this holiday season. Normally I prefer cold drinks, but hot apple cider (with rum), hot chocolate (with Peppermint Kahlua), and hot mulled wine with spices have been keeping me warm lately.
Mulled wine is so easy, I can't believe I've never made it before. You can add any spices you choose. I went with a wide variety but you can select just a few of these:
plus about 1/4 cup of brown sugar
Pour a bottle of wine over the spices. You can do this in a pot on the stove or in a crock pot. If you're serving a crowd, go ahead and double this.
Warm over medium heat until steaming, then keep warm for serving.
I like the spicy flavour the ginger adds, but you can play around until you find your personal ideal spice combination.
Ladle into mugs to serve and enjoy this winter treat. Happy Holidays!
