One of wintry beverages made for cold nights is mulled wine. You can buy the spices in a spice bag or packet at a specialty shop, wine store or sometimes the local supermarkets have them. It’s perfect for sipping by a hot fire or when you attending an outdoor autumn/winter gathering. When I think of mulled wine I think of cold snowy winter evenings, Christmas tree lots under lights or a cozy pub with a roaring fire.
Now that I live in Florida, winters are brief and they aren’t cold enough for hot mulled wine. But then, I can sit on the beach and enjoy a nice breeze on a winter evening, instead.
PS. I had coffee in this mug today and improvised the color of of the contents. There is an etched flower on the glass but it would not have worked here.
