Perfect mulled wine. I think rum is a must though, rather than the other options.
Rita, I have never had mulled wine before, so I was very excited to try your recipe. I thought that it would be a disappointment because I had built it up in my head so much, but alas it was FABULOUS. I made as you directed, used a rosehip teabag because I didn't have any dried hibiscus leaves. The only thing I left out was the garnish.
So delicious and warming. Perfect addition to a cold January evening. I skipped the cardamom (I didn't have any) and used Cointreau in place of rum/brandy since that's what I had in the house. I also threw a bag of fresh cranberries in the Crock Pot with the rest of the ingredients. The result was very similar to the one I used to drink in Poland during holidays. Yum! Thank you Rita.
Thanks for this recipe Rita. I printed and made the perfect spiced wine with your recipe back in Christmas 2007 when this site was still recipezaar.com
I made this last year for a holiday party, and while starting to plan this year's, I realized I hadn't rated it. It was fun to make and smelled and tasted great. My crockpot was drained! I used port, which I will do again this year.
This was fantastic. I added a pomegranate cut in half...everyone loved it!
This mulled wine was beautiful looking and smelled divine! Unfortunately I found it expensive and the flavor was overpowering. It is hearty and for the mulled wine enthusiast.
