Happy National Mulled Wine Day! Celebrate with new recipes from Taste and Savor's Chef Nancy Waldeck on Atlanta & Company.

What is mulled wine? Simply spiced warm wine with a shot of liquor in it. Made all over the world to chase away the cold weather, in Italy it’s called Brulé, in Germany it's Glühwein and if you’ve visited Spain in the winter, you’ll find Sangria warm and filled with fruit.

Mulled Wine in the Slow Cooker

  • 2 Bottles Red Wine (I like California Zinfandel)
  • ½ Orange Liquor or Brandy
  • ¼ to ½ Cup Maple Syrup
  • 4 Cloves
  • 4 Star Anise
  • 4 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Peel of 1 Orange

Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and heat on LOW. Depending on your slow cooker – it will take between one and two hours for the wine to warm. Reduce the heat and serve the wine with an orange slice.
