Pinspiration: 5 Hot Mulled Wine Recipes For Cold Winter Days

There's one thing I always wait for from the moment Daniel and I book our European winter vacation. You'll be surprised, it's not the crazy-sale shopping ๐Ÿ™‚

The real star of my winter vacation is the hot mulled wine. The same drink that can be bought in European winter markets, especially around Christmas.

As someone who suffers from the cold and is still unwilling to skip winter vacation, I decided to adopt the hot mulled wine as my sidekick on cold winter days. With all due respect to the coat, scarf and wool hat – none of them do the job like mulled wine.

Thereโ€™s something comforting about mulled wine. It warms the body from the outside and the inside, lifting your mood and as a bonus, even leaves your lips slightly stained in the color of a winter burgundy.

This year I decided that thereโ€™s no reason to reduce the consumption of mulled wine only to the short visits to the winter markets. So it's true that in Israel we donโ€™t celebrate Christmas, and yes, the winter here is also much less colder than the European winter. But thereโ€™s no reason why I shouldnโ€™t indulge in a cup of hot mulled wine on the couch in the evening, and even at this very moment while Iโ€™m writing this post ๐Ÿ˜‰

Even if youโ€™ve never tasted hot mulled wine, you've probably already figured out what it's all about. This comforting drink is traditionally made from wine {usually red}, a sweetener and a mixture of spices that usually includes cinnamon, star anise, cloves and nutmeg. It has different nicknames around the world and sometimes the ensemble is slightly different, but everyone agrees that this is the base for the warm wine.

The hot mulled wine can be prepared quickly and easily at home. Simply pour red wine into a pot, add the spices and sweetener and simmer for about 20 minutes.

… and let's not talk about the addictive smell that fills the house!

 

 

 

 

Here are 3 tips that will make your hot mulled wine perfect:

 

โ†’ย You can get away with cheap wine in this case. Itโ€™s a shame to spend a lot of money on a strong hearty wine thatโ€™s full of flavors only to change the flavor with dominant spices.

โ†’ย Fresh spices enhance the taste of the hot mulled wine. Donโ€™t compromise for spices pre-packed on the shelf.

โ†’ย Donโ€™t rush it. Let the wine cook slowly in a pot with a closed lid on low heat.
