Here we can buy cartons or mulled wine and all one has to do is heat it up and enjoy it. It is a very common drink at any event in the winter especially up the mountains after all that skiing. What I like about it, is that it warms you up and it's not like having a glass of wine per glass, it's red wine watered down. My recipe is 2 glasses of red wine, one glass of water, a clementine(Tangerine or orange whatever one calls it) two teaspoons of sugar, two cloves(the spice not garlic) a cardamom stick, heat up all together and do not let boil over, and serve. Smells great and tastes great too. One can adjust accordingly.
There is no love sincerer than the love of food. ~George Bernard Shaw
