Homemade Mulled Wine

One thing I love about winter is the colorful festive lights wherever you turn and the Christmas markets!! It’s heavenly feeling when you sip a nice and warm aromatic mulled wine as you wander around those festive streets full of stalls. I’ve always been wanting to prepare my own mulled wine ever since I tried one.  I was surprised at myself when it turned out wonderfully well in my first attempt.  Here I’m presenting the Mulled Wine recipe for you all to try.

Wish you all a Merry Xmas and happy holidays! Have a fabulous time!!
