Mulled wine: a comforting drink, it embodies the very essence of Christmas and brings back heart-warming memories of childhood!
In the whirlwind of changing seasons, one tradition stands out, emitting warm, spicy aromas that envelop the winter atmosphere: mulled wine. This comforting drink, which has stood the test of time, embodies the very essence of Christmas and carries with it heart-warming memories of childhood.

Ancient memories  

Mulled wine dates back to ancient times, when it was drunk for its medicinal properties. Over the centuries, this potion has evolved into a warm, festive drink, marking end-of-year celebrations and cold winter evenings. Each region of Europe has added its own touch, depending on the spices available, creating a variety of recipes that delight palates the world over, such as in Scandinavia, where sultanas and almonds are added, or in France, citrus fruits... From German Christmas markets to French cobbled streets, mulled wine has crossed borders and brought us together.  

The magic ingredients  

The soul of mulled wine lies in its subtle blend of spices. Cinnamon, the undisputed star of this drink, adds a gentle warmth and sweet flavour that envelops every sip. Clove, with its intense aroma, adds a subtly spicy note, while nutmeg offers a touch of complexity and elegance. Orange zest adds a fruity freshness, perfectly balancing the rich flavours of the spices. Finally, juniper berries round off the experience with a woody, herbaceous nuance. Together, these spices dance to an aromatic symphony, creating a palette of flavours that evokes memories of yesteryear.

A secret revealed 

After all, mulled wine isn't just a drink, it's a celebration of love and sharing. In this month of December, it's high time I shared with you my almost-secret recipe for my delectable mulled wine.
