Before Christmas, Jesse and I decided to bust out some of our ancient Red "table wine" that had been collecting dust in the pantry. Instead of drinking the questionable mystery wine straight, we whipped up a batch of mulled wine. We used a prepackaged kit purchased years ago from Stony Knoll Vineyards, but it's easy (and arguably tastier!) to throw together mulled wine on your own.
Here's what we paired it with, if you'd like to see:
- Break & Bake cookies: Classic. Easy. Win-win.
- M&Ms: Chocolate pairs well with everything. That's a scientific fact.
- Cheese: Trader Joe's wine-soaked cheese is always a winner, and a staple at any wine-related event we host.
- Salami: Cured meats are another staple at any wine event.
So what do you think? Are you a mulled wine fan, or no? Stay tuned for a mulled wine recipe later this week!
