A recipe that’s complicated in flavor, but a snap to pull together, the vibrant scents steaming from your stovetop will lull you and your guests into a holiday state of mind. So ditch the scented pine candles, because all you need this season is a large pot of simmering mulled wine to turn your home into a festive gathering.
I like to use a dry wine, such as a Spanish Tempranillo, which plays nicely with the fragrant punches of cardamom, cloves and allspice. However, there are no rules when making this brew: simply pick a red blend that you love, or even mix what you have in your pantry. At the end of the day, it’s all about the soothing spices and hint of honey that will instantly warm your soul and have you decking the halls in no time flat.
