Mulled Wine

This traditional winter drink – mulled wine – has made something of a comeback of late, turning up at more Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Thanksgiving and Christmas parties than ever before. The mulling of wine goes back as far as Roman times, when the first known instances of wine being heated and spiced were recorded.
