I was excited for today because, as you know, I always love a chance to use all of these spices I bought for National Mulled Cider Day. Sadly, the results of this experiment were not quite as successful as my last two.
I followed this recipe. Well, minus the orange. And I just used one cup of wine because I didn’t want to drink an entire bottle by myself. Give me some credit.
I wasn’t sure what to expect. Who wants hot wine, right? But since I liked the hot buttered rum and mulled cider so much, I really thought I would have a similar reaction this time around. I should know better.
My verdict? Oh, god. I hated this. I hated it so hard. It was hot and spicy, but not in a good way. I don’t know if it was the brand of wine I used or what. All I know is that I took one sip and then dumped it out. No, thank you.
