Serve mulled wine for a crowd with ease this Christmas with this easy recipe that uses a slow cooker to keep it warm while serving.

From the book


The scrumptious aroma of this winter warmer filling the house is Christmas for me! This mulled wine is perfect if you’re entertaining because it’s so easy. Your guests will love it and I bet they will ask for the recipe. Whenever you’re running low, simply add another bottle; just replace the lid for a while as it warms up.
