Todd's Premium Mulled Wine using Todd's Premium Mulling Spices
The tradition of warm, mulled wine dates back centuries in Europe, but this aromatic treat is becoming a holiday favorite world-wide. Recipes vary between cultures and regions--some choose to add a liqueur of choice to the wine and mulling spices--but Todd's opted for this simple, yet crowd-pleasing, and delicious base that can be tweaked to personal taste.
To prepare this gorgeous Mulled Wine using our Signature Mulling Spices, follow the recipe, below. Cheers!
Todd's Premium Mulled Wine
Using Todd's Premium Mulling Spices
- 1.5 L bottle (two 750 ml. bottles) Red Wine of choice--we used Merlot
*Red or white--your choice! We suggest a dry wine (Merlot, Cabernet, Zinfandel, Syrah, etc. or Savingnon Blanc, Chardonnay, etc.), but if you have a sweet tooth you MAY opt. for a sweet red (and forego any liqueur)! Either way, don't use anything expensive--the mulling spices will overpower any quality
½ package (2.25oz.) 4.5oz. package (or 4 Tbsp.)* Todd’s Mulling Spices
*more or less Mulling Spices, to taste (if not sweet or spiced enough, just add more!)
OPTIONAL: 1-2 Tbsp. Honey to taste
*we added 1 Tbsp. to take more of the dry edge off the Merlot
