Smoked Mulled Wine

Table of Contents

Mulled wine is a classic staple in many households during the holidays. Mulled wine is a heated, spiced wine that has simmered with autumn’s biggest spice flavors! Mulled wine is perfect for large family gatherings during the holidays because it is SO easy to prepare and serves many in seconds! Mulled wine is essentially very similar to a red wine sangria, but heated!

Thanksgiving is certainly the best time to explore mulled wine, but can be enjoyed the entire winter season! Explore mulled wine with different flavors and additives to make it your own! Mulled wine is best served with red wine instead of white, but other than that, enjoy it how you would like!

Mulled wine has never been smoked before that I’ve seen, so this is definitely a first!! The cinnamon smoke dust adds a new layer of flavor that is not expected from mulled wine!
