November 16, 2016

With the smell of spicy goodness simmering over the stove, the European tradition of mulled wine & cider ushers in the holidays with the warm, reassuring tastes of  fruit, spice & sweetness in one amazing drink. Simple to prepare and a pleasure to consume, mulled drinks are the perfect antidote to a chilly evening and a great tribute to  friends and family.

Here are two easy to follow recipes that will have your home smelling like a grand Victorian parlor right out of Dickens.
