Mull Over The Good Times

February 28, 2023

If you love the smell of aromatic spices and warm cinnamon then mulled wine is the perfect hot tail for you. Mulled wine is a great way to warm up and get cozy with family and friends, especially since National Mulled Wine Day is upon us.

Mulled Wine dates all the way back to Ancient Rome where they would boil wine with honey and spices then blend the mixture with higher quality wine to finish it off before serving. That said, you can make your Mulled Wine however you like with whatever spices you desire to taste. Don’t be afraid to make the recipe your own!

Alternatively, if Mulled Wine isn’t your thing then you can also mull Apple Cider.

A Gray Ember Mug² is filled with a hot toddy drink and topped with apple slices. It sits on a weathered dark wooden table.
