I was super happy with my mulled wine with a red wine base but this came into my head one day and I had to try it. If you can believe it I actually like this better than my red wine version! I know, it's crazy, since I am a huge red wine drinker, but this was super delicious!
This month I have been working at the liquor store which involves a lot of people asking what to mix with certain things. One day I had a woman ask what she should mix with hot apple cider. The first thing that popped into my head was to mix it with a white wine and make a mulled cider/wine. As soon as I suggested it I thought, "OMG, why am I not doing that?" So here it is and it ticked off all the boxes of a warm holiday drink. In this mulled wine, apples and cinnamon come together to create all the apple spice you need. Pair it with some ginger cookies and a holiday movie and you are all set!
4 cups apple cider
1 bottle of white wine (A white blend or pinot grigio works best)
1/2 cup of fireball
4-6 cinnamon sticks
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 cup of cranberries
dash of cardamom
apples for garnish (optional)
Pour all of the ingredients into a slow cooker. Cook on High heat until it reaches desired temperature. The longer it sits the more the flavour from the cinnamon sticks and cloves will meld with the other flavours.
Serve in a heat proof mug and Enjoy!
