I had my best friend Theresa coming over, and I figured this would be the perfect cocktail for us to enjoy on this cold fall evening. As we get deeper into the fall months, I have a hard time keeping myself from being cold all the time, and this mulled wine warms me right up. If you love wine, you will love this recipe! It’s full of amazing flavors that will make you feel so cozy.
What’s great about this drink is that you can let it sit warming on the stove or put it in a crockpot. Anytime you or a guest want more, they can help themselves. It would be great at a holiday party or any type of party really. Let me know what you think! Cheers!
