National Mulled Wine Day on March 3rd warms us up with fruits, spices, and wine. In the lingering days of winter, a hot mug of mulled wine hits the spot and fills the home with pleasant aromas.
Mulled spirits are wine and liquors that have been heated and spiced. Mulled wine is usually made with red wine with various spices, fruits and sometimes slightly sweetened with honey. Popular blends include cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, vanilla, anise, cloves, raisins or pears.
Wine was first recorded as spiced and heated in First Century Rome.
The combination of the heated spirits and spices are a warm welcome on a cold winter’s day and have long been considered a balm against illness during this time of year.
Since we live in Florida, this is a warm welcome for us in late fall. It makes a great treat for holiday parties. Put it on low in a crockpot for an easy way to serve for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This will make your home both smell and feel amazing for holiday family gatherings.
