Everyone's favorite winter drink!
Nothing could be more cozy and relaxing during the holidays, than settling down after a cold, busy day with a hot cup of mulled wine.
Mulled wine, or spiced wine as it's sometimes referred to, has been around since the second century. The Romans brought it over to Europe during their conquering escapades.
These days the sweet and spicy beverage can be found primarily in European markets, most notably Germany, during the winter season.
Mixing It Up
The traditional spices and fruit used in a classic mulled wine usually involve a blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom. But honestly, you can get as creative as you'd like.
