Wednesday Question of the Week

What is your favorite holiday drink?

Here's one of mine! 

Mulled Red Wine
"Piping hot, pungently spiced and thawingly alcoholic, it’s the perfect drink for the festive season."
(I think my new favorite saying is "thawingly alcholic")
(With "dayeen, dayoud" running a close second!)

Here's a wonderful recipe for Mulled Wine

  • 1 bottle of red wine
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 star anise
  • 4 cloves
  • 3 black peppercorns
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Juice of one orange
  • Zest of half an orange
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
Add all the ingredients to a large pot and heat through for about 10-20 minutes. Strain and serve. You can leave the lemon slices as garnish, and add orange slices too. Use the cinnamon sticks to stir!

And if you'd like something non-alcoholic, try substituting apple cider!  Just as delish ;)

So, now, give it up, what's your favorite holiday drink?
