Hot Mulled Wine
Wine is not often consumed hot anymore, but at one time it was a heartening treat in the winter. With christmassy spices like cloves, it can bring a rosy glow after a sleigh ride, or a good old-fashioned snowball fight.
Here is a simple recipe that will introduce you to this pleasant drink.
1 bottle red wine
2 cinnamon sticks
rind of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons sugar
Add all ingredients to a bot and steep gently over a medum heat until hot. Avoid boiling the mixture. Serve in mugs with carvings of reindeer on the side (or whatever you have - it's just best not to use your best crystal with very hot wines).
