Are you ready for tomorrow? Are you sure you’re ready for the crowd that is about to enter your home? Do you have everything? Gifts, food, dress, food? Drinks? Yeah, drinks! Ain’t no party without some spirits and wine, now, is there?

Allow me to help you out with that answer; No.

Moreover, allow me to help you out with the drinks part. How about we create a delicious hot beverage in the slow cooker? Mulled Wine is a great option! All we have to do is turn the slow cooker dial on low and forget about it until it is time to serve. Best part – it’s low in sugar!

You can thank me for that after the holidays when you realize that I saved you a few calories and carbs.

As part of the DailyBuzz Food Tastemaker program I was selected to create a low-sugar beverage recipe with Sweet’N Low sweetener.

No problemo!

We love wine. Underline, Bold, Italicize, Caps – LOVENow you definitely know how much we love wine.

But this time of year, we like our wine a bit spiced. And warm. Don’t you? That is why it was a no-brainer for me when I was given this assignment.

Sweet’N Low has made life a bit easier for people like my dad that are either borderline diabetic or diabetic. Because of my dad, we usually go around about adding sugar to many of my recipes by using Sweet’N Low sweetener in place of sugar. My dad loves his sweets and these hot drinks, but without the help of Sweet’N Low sweetener, he wouldn’t be able to enjoy them.

    Thank you for the recipe – looks perfect for warming me up this winter – with one exception. PLEASE DO YOURSELF & FAMILY a HUGE FAVOR, and replace the Sweet N’Low with Stevia. Stevia is fantastic to sweeten anything that is fruit based, has zero calories, and is “natural” (though processed) substance – & does not have the extremely detrimental effects on your body as aspartame. If you are unaware of these, please become educated. is a good place to start. Blessings for a New Year!

    I thought diabetics weren’t supposed to be drinking alcohol?

    We LOVE our wine too. This one sounds like a perfect treat for the holidays – or just a really cold winter day. :)
