HOT and Tasty Holiday SPICED Wine
I have always seen mulling spices at the store but never paid them much thought.
But I am always looking for something new to try especially for the holidays.
So I thought what could taste better than a nice hot cup of wine.
This is what I brought over for Thanksgiving.
Although the hot version was good…I must say I liked the cold version much better.
- 2 (750-milliliter) bottles red wine
- 2 cups apple juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons mulling spice
- some sweet vermouth
Bring all ingredients to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding mulling spices.
Serve wine hot.
TRIVIA: The popular phrase “mulling it over,” meaning to consider an idea carefully,
is most likely derived from the slow and deliberate process of creating mulled beverages.
