Mulled Wine Recipe

A Healthy Holiday Cocktail For All the Eggnog-Haters

During the holiday season, I love having warm spiced cocktails like eggnog and hot buttered rum to help warm me up in chillier temps. The downside is the astronomical amount of sugar and fat contained in these holiday classics. A nice alternative to these dairy-based drinks is mulled wine. It's served warm and uses all the spices associated with the holidays but contains zero fat, and its star ingredient is heart-healthy red wine. Adding to mulled wine's appeal is that it also make a great cocktail for parties; it's easy to make ahead of time and can be done in large batches. Who doesn't want things to be as simple as possible when it comes to planning a holiday party?
