My Ultimate Mulled Wine Recipe
Once the weather begins to get cooler, I tend to begin making mulled wine. This is partially because I just really love the holidays, and I love anything that is festive. I’ve been making mulled wine for the past four years, and I tweak my recipe each year. This is so that I can find one that meets all of my criteria, and I think we have a winner this year!
This recipe actually adds a few things that I don’t typically add to my average mulled wine, but I think that made it that much better. I just heat mine in a saucepan on my stove top, but you can easily do this in a slow cooker or crock pot as well. This year, I have an exciting addition from Mercier Orchards which is located about forty minutes away from me. It is an apple orchard that I have been going to for well over a decade or two now, and makes amazing goods. If you find yourself in North Georgia, it’s definitely worth the stop!
Cooler weather means festive traditions!

In addition to the amazing apple cider from Mercier Orchards, I have a few extra spices that make it a little bit more cozy. This recipe is a little bit sweeter than the recipes I have tried in the past, and it makes is
