As the mornings get darker and colder, and Autumn starts to set in, it is only fitting that March 3rd is International Mulled Wine Day. In celebration of such a delicious day, we are sharing our mulled wine recipe with you.
Mulled wine, also referred to as spiced wine, is an alcoholic drink made with red wine, a varying variety of spices, fruits, and sometimes spirits. Served hot or warm, it is believed mulled wine first originated during the 2nd century BC.
Being such a great winter warmer, it is very common to find mulled wine in the United Kingdom during winter and around Christmas time. Many other countries have adapted the traditional mulled wine recipes for themselves. In Germany, it is called glüwhein, in Nordic countries, it is called glögg, and the list of countries that have re-developed their own versions goes on.
