Combat the Cold with Mulled Wine

Great snowpacolypse! It's been a crazy winter so far on the Northeast. As I type this, even more snow is landing outside my NYC windowsill. So to combat the cold, its time to mull things up. Try this tasty recipe for Mulled Wine... its like a fireplace in your wine glass!
  • 2 bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 4 oz. port or brandy
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 large orange, zested
Combine ingredients in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Do not allow mixture to boil. Heat for 20 minutes and serve in a large, heat resistant punch bowl or glass. If you want to spruce things up a bit, garnish with cinnamon sticks or freshly ground nutmeg.
