Honey & Spice Mulled Wine

If you’re entertaining this holiday season, welcome your guests with a festive glass of Honey & Spice Mulled Wine. Not only does the drink taste delicious and seasonal, but you won’t be able to resist the smell of warm cinnamon and spice. I make this in the crockpot to ensure the mixture never boils, as that will cook off the alcohol in the wine. The idea is to blend the flavors and warm through without overheating. This can be made on the stovetop as well, you just need to keep a closer eye on it. This is an impressive drink that only takes a minute to prepare!
