Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled Wine is a traditional Christmas drink, usually made with a mixture of red wine and a blend of spices, typically served hot or warm. Mulled Wine was originally created by the Romans in the 2nd Century to defend themselves against the cold weather. Throughout the next century, the Romans conquered much of Europe, spreading their love of Mulled Wine throughout the regions they traded with. The Europeans  would develop the recipe by adding spices to the heated wine, believing it would promote good health and fight off sickness. In contemporary culture, countries all over continue to create their own variations of the classic recipe to be enjoyed worldwide.
