MmMm-Mulled Wine


In addition to the food being served, be adventurous with your holiday drink! Treat guests to warm, homemade mulled wine that is enhanced with fruits and spices instead of sugar.

*To make this recipe you will need an empty tea satchel for the spices. As an alternative, whole spices can be substituted for the ground spices: tie spices together in cheesecloth or use a stainless steel tea infuser.*
