A spiced warming red mulled wine flavored using cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, oranges, cloves, star anise, and any other fall spices as desired.
I first tried mulled wine at a Christmas market in Germany. It was so fragrant and warming, almost like a hug in a cup! I've since taken to making a batch at home during the fall or winter season. It's especially great for bringing along and sharing with others at a campfire or bonfire.
