Mulled Wine is a red wine infused with fruits and spices and served warm. This traditional European drink is popular around the holidays and served at Christmas markets worldwide.
Are you ready for tomorrow? Are you sure you’re prepared for the crowd entering your home? Do you have everything? Gifts, food, dress, food? Drinks? Yeah, drinks! There is no party without some spirits and wine.
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.
You can thank me for that after the holidays when you realize that I saved you a few hours and headaches.
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.
Grab a bottle of wine, an orange, some cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger root, and BOURBON! 🥃 Let’s do this!

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. Mercola.com is a good place to start. Blessings for a New Year!
Thanks for the info, Sandra! Will do!!
I thought diabetics weren’t supposed to be drinking alcohol?
Anna, I know my dad is allowed to have the occasional glass of wine. You can read about it on the American Diabetes Association website:
Thank you for the link.
We LOVE our wine too. This one sounds like a perfect treat for the holidays – or just a really cold winter day. 🙂
I bet this smells incredible! Merry Christmas to you, Kate! 🙂
