Mulled Wine for the Holidays


I found the perfect gift to make for my girlfriends this holiday. Mulled wine spices in a jar. It’s perfect, first because we all LOVE wine and second because I’ve been saving all my jam jars to reuse.

I washed and sterilized the jars in the dishwasher after removing their labels. Then my husband thankfully spray painted the tops of their lids a festive red.

I printed out the ingredients in the jar and directions on how to use them. Then attached the paper to the jar with some ribbon.

They look super cute and will taste fantastic!

Ingredients are: cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange peels, ginger, a pinch of anise and a pinch of brown sugar.

Directions: dump ingredients from the jar in a pot with a bottle of red wine. Heat and stir for 30 mins. Do not boil. Strain wine and enjoy!
