Mull some holiday spirit into your beverages

Mulled wine or cider is a classic for Christmas. It's warm and inviting and filled with beautiful spices and Christmas spirit. Here are some tips for concocting a delicious Holiday beverage.

Choose a semi sweet wine - if you aren't sure what the sweetness of a wine is check the label or sign next to the wine 0-4 is the scoring system 0 being the most dry and 4 being the most sweet. You can always add sweetness but you can't take it away! Honey is the perfect sweetener for this drink.
A delicious beverage filled with holiday flare

Use a vegetable peeler on your lemons and oranges to add to the simmering liquid.

Do not boil! Heat your beverage on a low simmer for 15-20 mins to infuse all the flavors.

Use whole spices... cinnamon, cardamom, star anise and cloves are lovely.

Bonus - your house will smell like the holidays for hours!

Merry Christmas!
