Recipe Tips

  • To keep the mulled wine warm, turn the slow cooker to the keep warm setting. Alternatively, you can switch it between low and off to keep the wine warm.
  • The type of red wine that you use should not be sweet. Try to something like a merlot or cabernet sauvignon.
  • Don't hesitate to tweak the quantity of the spices to get the best-flavored drink for your taste buds.
  • A non-alcoholic wine can be used in place of the red wine. Grape juice, ginger wine, cranberry juice are all excellent substitutions for red wine.
