Crock Pot Mulled Wine


Now that Halloween is behind us it makes me so happy to welcome November and start thinking about the Holidays!  As it's getting colder and the days are getting shorter I love to warm up my evenings by sipping on a hot cocktail. 



Crock Pot Mulled Wine


I love making mulled wine in the crock pot because it makes my house smell so amazing!  There is nothing better than the smell of Holiday spice in a warm house when you know that it's cold outside.  

Definitely don't get too fancy with the wine.  I always use a lower cost red that's a little fruity.  I love making mulled wine because there's really no wrong way to do it.  You can get creative with the spices you put in, and it's always an instant crowd pleaser.


You can find one of my favorite mulled wine recipes below.  I hope you're able to enjoy this hot cocktail at a Holiday party or during a cozy night in.  Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
