Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Mulled Wine

November 30, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,

Are you ready for a warm cocktail?! Today we're sharing a recipe for mulled wine, also known as spiced wine. Mulled wine is popular in Europe around Christmas time, and I have a feeling it will be popular in the Leverett household as well! There are many variations of this cozy beverage, so feel free to experiment with different spices and flavors. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!
