Mulled wine, a Christmas tradition, is a wine made from leftover wine. This drink is made by heating wine and adding sugar, lemon juice, and spices. Cinnamon, orange, lemon, and cloves are typically used.
Many make mulled wine by brewing a cup of mulled tea and then adding the wine to heat it.
Mulled tea can be a great warmer for chilly winter nights, but there is no reason not to enjoy this drink that reminds us all of Christmas.
