Lush Mulled Wine

A long day of skiing, sledding, snow ball fights, or just toughing it out through a frigid winter day? A steaming, fortifying cup of lush mulled wine is the answer you are looking for.

Heating red wine brings out the bitter tannins, and it needs a sweetening balance. Why add just sweetness with sugar when you can add layers upon layers of flavor with both Vanilla and Black Pepper Rich Simple Syrups: the caramelly goodness of palm sugar, the mellow luxuriousness of vanilla, and the rich bite of black pepper. Park yourself in front of a fireplace with a good book and enjoy the sound of the blustery wind outside.
