Easy and Mellow Mulled Wine Recipe

96

For those of you who follow my writing (thank you!) you know I love Christmas. From the lights to the shiny ornaments, even the late-night gift-wrapping on Christmas Eve doesn’t thwart me.  What I love most of all, though, is yummy festive food. Like this mulled wine recipe – a warm blend of spices, dry wine and orange slices that transports you to the Christmas markets of Europe.

Traditional Mulled Wine Recipe

My hubby and I have travelled a lot over the years. Early in our marriage, before kids came on the scene, and when I still worked for British Airways, we would jump on a plane on a Friday night and wind up spending the weekend in Europe. We lived in Dubai at that time so it was a much shorter flight than it is now from Toronto. My memories of that time as always are entangled with the food I tried out on various trips. This mulled wine recipe is form those early trips. Since then it has become a Christmas staple in our house.  It doesn’t feel like the holiday season till I’ve made my first pot of mulled wine.

Enjoy!
