Slow Cooker Mulled Wine is perfect for the holidays.
With winter making an early appearance here in the Midwest, it is the perfect time to make a warm, cozy cocktail like this Slow Cooker Mulled Wine.
This Slow Cooker Mulled Wine is quick and easy to make. Red wine is warmed in the slow cooker with aromatic holiday spices like cinnamon and cloves. Instead of just adding the cloves to the wine, I like to stud a piece of orange with the cloves. This way you don’t end up with a clove in your drink!
You can definitely make this Slow Cooker Mulled Wine on the stove top too. Making mulled wine in the slow cooker is perfect for entertaining and during the holidays. This way it frees up a space on the stove top.
The key to making mulled wine is that you don’t want to overheat the wine. You just want heat the wine, without bringing it to a boil. This way the alcohol won’t cook out! For the slow cooker, you just want the wine to come up to a simmer on low. The cook time will depend on your slow cooker. I like to start checking the wine after 30 minutes. Once the wine comes up to a simmer and it warm, turn the slow cooker to the warm setting.
This Slow Cooker Mulled Wine is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly night!
