Cinnamon, Spice, and Everything Nice

Four mulled wine options to kick your winter libation choices up a notch.

Just what the doctor ordered after a cold day on the slopes: a bottle of mulled wine—spices and holiday spirit included. Just warm on the stove and enjoy piping hot like they do at the Christmas markets in Europe.

“Glögg” is an old Scandinavian word meaning burning ember, and you’ll feel the warmth of this half dry red, half port wine blended with cinnamon, cardamom, and orange-peel spread from head to toe. [$12,]

For the white wine and apple pie lovers out there, this is the mulled wine for you. Once warmed it basically tastes like a Thanksgiving dessert. [$14,]

A ruby red, sweet wine packed with spices and ready to be warmed and enjoyed right out of the bottle, though you could get fancy and toss in extras for added holiday notes. [$15.73,]



Schmitt Söhne

A staple of Christmas markets across Germany, and once you try a steaming mug on a cold, starry night, you’ll know why. This spicy yet sweet concoction will stoke your inner furnace. []
