Holiday Drink Recipe: Mulled Wine
Toast to the holidays with this warm mulled wine
My husband lived in Germany for several years, and he always spoke fondly of walking around with a hot cup of glühwein, a spiced wine. This recipe may not be an exact replica, but it combines my favorite holiday flavors in a warm cup. It's simple to make, and perfect for your next holiday party or family gathering.
