Mulled Wine Recipes
The word "mulled" simply means heated and spiced. Many liquids can be mulled - mead, cider, and of course wine. Mulled wine is a traditional favorite in cooler locations, and goes well with the various celebrations that come around the end of the year.
Mulled wines have a long history. In medieval times mulled wines were called Ypocras or Hipocris, named after the physician Hippocrates. They were thought to be very healthy, and indeed, with wine at the time being far more sanitary than water, these heated drinks did keep people healthy through the cold winters. References to mulled wine can be found throughout medieval and renaissance days, especially for Christmas and winter-time celebrations.
Celebrate any cool day with a warm dose of mulled wine!
