Holiday Spiced Mulled Wine, an easy party cocktail that will please a crowd. This Mulled Wine is perfect for any Holiday Party and sure to warm you up from head to toe!
And just when I thought wine couldn’t get any better!
Say hello to your new favorite holiday drink! It’s basically like Sangria with a few different spices and served warm! Ya’ll… I’m officially in love! Screw the hot apple cider, this is what you want! Beeeelllieeeve me!
I remember seeing Mulled Wine on Pinterest last year. I even went on a blogger brand trip last year where they served mulled wine. But for some reason I just couldn’t get over the fact that wine being served warm.
I like my red wine served slightly chilled, so they idea that the entire drink was warm kinda weirded me out.
Wine was not meant to be warm. What was wrong with people?
Well, like all things. I decided to get over my idea of what things “should be” and just try it. And let me tell you, I’m so glad I did.
Not only does your house get permeated with the smell of this drink but you get to reap the benefits of it afterwards.
Everything about this cocktail will warm you up from head to toe! It is filled with cinnamon sticks, cloves, and star anise then complimented with fresh citrus for the perfect amount of intrigue for your tastebuds!
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and thrown into the crock pot if you want to serve it at a holiday party and will definitely be enough to quench a thirsty crowd!
I think every good holiday party MUST have a fantastic cocktail that leaves people wanting the recipe. It just adds to the overall “feel” of the party. Plus cocktails just make people happy… if you know what I mean. hehe
This Holiday Spiced Mulled Wine is a must make this month. Yeck, I’d even make it just for me and the hubbie to have something warm to curl up with as we watch Christmas movies. Fire crackling (well… gas crackling haha.. I AM in Texas), Christmas lights glimmering, curled up with my hubbie with this warm drink in my hand.
That is just pure perfection to me!
I hope you guys make it! I KNOW your going to love it!
Stay thirsty my friends! Cheers!Print
