This Mulled Wine Is the Perfect Wintertime Drink

J.T. Ellison

Snow Day Mulled Wine
December is the perfect time to break out some mulled wine, for either your holiday parties or on these chilly winter nights. Hope you don't mind the repost. We're going to make some riiiiiiight... now

LET'S MAKE MULLED WINE!

Super simple version: if you're lucky enough to have Penzey's Mulling Spices on hand, combine 1 tablespoon of mulling spices per bottle of red wine (I bet this fruity zinfandel would make some delicious mulled wine), bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. Easy peasy.

BUT DON'T FRET: THE "HARD" WAY ISN'T MUCH MORE WORK. HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 whole nutmeg 
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • zest of 1 orange (none of that white stuff—that'll make it bitter!)
  • 1 bottle of red wine

Directions: bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes. Fish out the whole spices, if you wish.

Don't have whole spices? Go light on the ground spices, mixing and matching until you've got the right flavor combo. Remember: you can always add, but you can't take away.

And that, my friends, is how to make a perfect snow day drink. 

Cheers!
