Day 14 of Blogmas and I’m slowly losing my energy. But I will persevere all the same! I can’t start something like this and give up halfway.
I’m totally going to take inspiration from the Ugly Christmas Sweater party that I attended last night. It was a blast getting to mingle and chat with new people – all of whom were super friendly and fun to talk to! There was a variety of snacks that everyone brought over, but my favorite part of the food/drinks part of the night was the mulled wine that a few of the guests made.
I’ve never had mulled wine before then, but I will definitely have it again. They mixed two bottles of red wine with apple cider, honey, cinnamon, ginger, oranges, and some zest. It was warmed up in a crock pot, which is why it’s so perfect for winter. The drink ended up being super sweet and just absolutely delicious. I was sad that I had to limit myself to one cup because I had to leave early!
If you’re looking for a more specific recipe, here is one for the image up above on Gimme Some Oven. But, honestly, feel free to deviate from the recipe a little bit and make it your own!
