Mulled Wine

Making mulled wine couldn’t be easier. Combine a bottle of red with some orange slices, spices, honey, and brandy, and let it simmer for 20 minutes. THAT’S IT. We like using dry varietals like merlot, malbec, or cab sauv. But really, your favorite bottle should work. If you don’t like brandy, or don’t want to buy a bottle, skip it.
