I have a recipe for you that will keep you warm during these cold winter evenings... I remember my parents used to drink it during winter town markets back in Czech Republic... and I also remember my Czech friends here in the US making it during winter parties.
Mulled Wine has been around for a very long time. There are many ways to prepare it - and here is mine :-)
I use my favorite red wine made with organic grapes... in California.
Put 1 cinnamon stick and 3 whole cloves into the pot with 1 cup of red wine.
Bring the wine to a slight boil, until you see a yellow foam and then simmer for about 4 minutes.
Pour it into a glass that can handle really hot liquid. I like to sweeten it with a teaspoon of honey but you can also use 2 teaspoons of sugar.
Decorate your glass with a slice of orange and you can also put one inside the glass.
Enjoy dear friends... and cheers!
