Spring has definitely sprung in Seattle. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the days are getting longer, but a crisp chill remains firmly in the air. Chilly nights beg for a little warm up and a snuggly blanket. For these cold evenings, I find a mug of mulled wine to be the perfect warm beverage to take the chill off. This is another easy recipe requiring very few ingredients and very little effort before offering up huge rewards! A great beverage recipe to have up your sleeve any time of the year.
