Mulled Wine with Spices

Want a treat that's about everything cozy? Try our mulled wine recipe for a holiday staple that's too good for just a special occasion.

Super-easy to make, we like ours with a super-fruity red. While UL Barbera's our go to, mulled wine will be delicious with your favorite red or even a white wine or a cider. While it comes together quickly and can be made on a stove top, we recommend that you use a slow cooker if available and start it a few hours in advance so the spices bloom and integrate.
