The other day I was going through my cabinets and I found a bag of Mulling Spice that my sister left at my house. The first think I thought it what the heck are Mulling Spices followed by what can I use them for and why to they smell so good. What I found is that Mulling Spices have been used worldwide for centuries to flavor beverage from fruit juice to brandy. But, I am going to show you how to make a holiday favorite Mulled Wine. The essences of the mulling spices will create a complex undertone of spicy and citrus flavors which complement the basic fruit elements of red wine. Here's the kicker, we are cutting out a lot of the sugar and knocking the carbs down to 7.5 g with calories at 85 but keeping all the amazing flavor. Serve this at your holiday party and it will be certain to raise the level of cheer.
