How to Make Delicious Mulled Wine to Warm Your Heart For the Christmas Holidays

Mulled Wine

A traditional winter holiday drink, making and serving mulled wine is an excellent way to celebrate Christmas with your friends and family.

To make this warm holiday drink, ideally you’ll need some red wine, honey (or sugar), and such spices and flavorings as cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, allspice berries, cloves, star anise pods, cardamom pods, ginger, peppercorns, citrus zest, or even a blend of mulling spices from your local health food store or supermarket.

Variations on mulled wine include Glogg in Nordic countries, Gluhwein in German speaking countries, and Navegado in Chile, in addition to the British style muled wine more commonly made in the England and America.

One of the great things about making your own mulled wine is that you can easily transform any mediocre or lesser bottles of red wine you have around the house into a delicious and warming holiday beverage your guests will enjoy.

You can see a video below by Alton Brown, where he shows you his modern method of mulling wine using large coffee percolators. Below the video, is a link to a text version of a mulled wine recipe for those that prefer to make it on the stovetop or in a slow cooker.
