Every party needs a couple of good bottles of wine. However, while wine is always welcome, give your guests a special treat by making mulled wine. It's no more difficult than simply opening a couple of bottles, especially when using the recipe that follows. Plus, it will give guests something warm, spicy and comforting to sip on — a must for any party thrown in the fall or winter months.
When making mulled wine, always start with a superior red wine. Its depth and flavor pair much more nicely than cheaper wine with the added spices and fruit. Adding brandy is a personal decision, but it can provide a lovely, rounded flavor that brings together the flavors of the wine and spices. This is one mulled wine that's guaranteed to get your party started!
