Hello everyone... Was it not enough that we had all those great holidays back in February National Wine Day, National Kahlua Day and so on... Now we have a holiday just for heated spiced wine; NATIONAL MULLED WINE DAY. YIPPEE!
March 3rd, 2011 has been declared National Mulled Wine Day. Perfect time of year for this wonderful concoction. It's like Christmas coming in the middle of winter; minus all the hoopla.
I could not be more excited about the prospect of a day solely dedicated to mulled wine. I think I will need to pull myself together, gather my favorite wine for mulling and get the stove-top ready! The smell in the house is gonna' be awesome tomorrow.
Hey there, wanna join me? Here's a recipe for you to enjoy. Or just come on by the inn.... the wine will be mulling all day.
One bottle of red wine (does not have to be expensive) ( less 1/4 cup as a taste test )
1/2 orange washed and cut into small wedges.
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
10 pieces of alspice
3/4 cup sugar ( more or less to taste )
1. combine all ingredients ( sample the wine )
2. mull on stove top under low heat ( taste test for errors )
3. drink passionately yet be responsible!
