Hot Mulled Wine

I love hot mulled wine. It totally says warm and cozy to me, especially when decorating the Christmas tree! Granted, it was sunny and on the warm side on Saturday, so we didn’t really NEED a hot drink. Still, though, it helped to set the mood. I used a Red Zin because it’s what we had open. Enjoy!
