How to make Mulled Wine!
Fall is upon us and with it, it brings the cooler weather and the perfect opportunity to sit by the fire (or TV) and enjoy some warm, spiced Mulled Wine!
Mulled Wine is a tradition that has been around since the oldest known English recipe books (The Forme of curry had a recipe published around 1390!) and hasn’t changed much since then, but there are subtle variations that can make your Mulled Wine perfect!
Here’s our favorite recipe for those long evenings at Corkbin HQ:
