Are You Ready for National Mulled Wine Day?
Did you know that Saturday, March 3rd is National Mulled Wine Day? Here at Adirondack Winery, warming up some mulled wine is one of our favorite ways to spice up a bottle of wine with some comforting flavors!
Mulled wine refers to a delicious, spice-infused wine drink that has been infused with spices and is served warm. Mulled wine has been around for centuries, dating all the way back to first century Rome, and was created as a tasty way to stay warm during cold winters. Mulled wine recipes can vary to suit your taste and what type of wine you want to use, and ingredients can include everything from cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and anise to fruits like figs, oranges, or apples.
