As you plan for your holiday hosting, a big-batch warm cocktail is always festive. Eggnog and Tom & Jerry’s satisfy that creamy craving, but mulled wine is a delish option that’s more cider-spicy and light. It’s completely simple to dump together. And the bonus? Let it simmer over the course of your afternoon, and your house will smell absolutely amazing.
Cheers, and Happy Holidays!
4 cups apple cider
1 bottle (750mL) red wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon
1/4 cup honey
4 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, zested and juiced
8 whole cloves
Combine all in a pot, and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat for at least 15 minutes, and serve in mugs. Add orange peel for a garnish.
