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.
We love wine. Underline, Bold, Italicize, Caps – LOVE. Now 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.

Now you can go rest easy knowing that for tomorrow you have a low-sugar option on that menu, which in turn will allow you to double up on that pie.
I would like to thank DailyBuzz Food and Sweet’N Low for this opportunity – Cheers and Merry Christmas!
