Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine is the perfect drink for relaxing by a warm fireplace on a chilly night. My son had basketball practice tonight and it was freezing outside.  Freezing by Arizona standards means 48 degrees, but it was so incredibly cold.  It was nice to come home and make Mulled Wine for my husband and I to enjoy while we watched a movie.  It would also be great to make a large batch for a group of friends and family.

    this looks yummy:) I’m pinning…does it matter what kind of red wine you use? and I’ve never had port before, what does it do to the taste if you leave it out?

      I used a Red Moscato because I like it sweet, but I am sure different red wines would be great. You could try Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. I only used a little bit of Port, so I don’t think the flavor would change too much without it.
