Mulled Wine Recipe

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!
