National Mulled Wine Day | Mulled Wine – The Foodie Patootie

National Mulled Wine Day | Mulled Wine

It’s National Mulled Wine Day! Are you celebrating? I celebrated yesterday in preparation for this post, but it’s all the same in my house these days. (Have you seen my National Cold Cuts Day recipe from today? I made a Thanksgiving Sandwich!!!!!!!)

Mulled Wine via TheFoodiePatootie.com | #booze #wine #drinks #recipe #foodholiday You may be asking- What is mulled wine, anyway? It’s something I asked Google myself. I very much know what wine is, but mulled wine? Is this something I’d like?

This is what I learned about mulled wine:

  1. It’s frequently consumed over the holidays, or winter.
  2. It’s similar to a Hot Toddy, but with wine, obviously.
  3. Mulled wine is wine that is sweetened, spiced, and heated.

Okay, all good things. Sounds good and The Foodie Patootie approved.
