Mulling it Over Wine

Mulled WIne 84

A cup of mulled wine, whether indoors at your holiday table or outdoors in the sukkah, gives you and your guests a little more time to enjoy each other’s company and the tranquility of the holidays. Substitute Concord grape juice for the red wine and brandy and even your youngest guests will want to hang around a little longer.
