Mulled Wine

November 21, 2012

During a trip  to London this week I made a fantastic discovery at the city’s famous food bazaar, Borough Market: Mulled Wine. Unsurprisingly the weather was nippy, however you couldn’t help but be entranced by smells drifting from all four corners of the market from the different vendors and their huge barrels of yumminess. The warm, spicy aroma made me smile with excitement.

Even though I am clearly late in catching onto this centuries old tradition, I was easily converted into a Mulled Wine Believer. It instantly makes you feel festive and cosy. Instead of drinking plain old wine this holiday season, spice up your life with this recipe. You, your friends and your family will get into the holiday spirit as soon as the spiced fragrances seep into your nostrils and warm your souls. Spend time with the ones you love and give thanks for everything, big and small (to include theyummytruth.com) as you sip some Mulled Wine.
