I first had this stuff during Christmas season in Italy. They serve it all over western Europe at this time of year at the outdoor street markets. I found a recipe and started making it several days a week in the slow cooker for afternoon socializing, dinner parties, warming up, etc. The recipe I have is packed away Lord knows where, so I’ve found a few online. When I finally find the one I used in Italy, I’ll post that as well.
- Here’s a list of several mulled wine recipes. This page also has several egg nog and spiced cider recipes.
- Mulled wine recipes from numerous countries. Host a multicultural mulled wine night and have everyone sleep over. Great for a remote cabin getaway where everyone wants to snowshoe or ski the next day.
- This mulled wine recipe is fortified with brandy.
- Glogg is the Swedish version of mulled wine. This recipe calls for vodka and cardamom along with the other expected ingredients.
Many of these recipes work very well with white wine too. As with sangria, mulled wine should be made with less expensive wines. So look for the stuff on the bottom shelf. The other flavors are what take precedent, so your guests will still be thrilled with this beverage.
