This easygoing vino finishes nicely with an ecstatic flair of black cherry, elderberry, and raspberry that heighten the flavors when mulled.

3 tbl Ground Cinnamon
2 tsp Ground Ginger
2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 tsp Ground Allspice
1 tsp Ground Cloves
Combined all ingredients and heat on LOW until hot.
It will take about an hour for it to get hot. Resist the urge to heat on HIGH so that you don’t boil the alcohol away and to give the spices time to permeate the beverage.
Reduce heat to WARM and serve.
Mulled wine actually improves as it sits; the flavors mellow and the spices perfume the whole house.
