Friends, it’s safe to say that winter has come to Wisconsin. As we layer up in soft flannels and wooly socks, we gather around the kitchen table for a little homemade comfort. Oversized bowls are filled with savory soups, and our chapped, frozen fingers are wrapped around mugs of libations that brighten our spirits.

 

‘Tis the season to welcome winter, and enjoy something cozy and bold. Grab your biggest mug and pour yourself a glass of mulled wine from our friends at Bittercube. Red wine is dressed up with rich honey, citrus, and crisp apples for a cocktail that wraps itself around you like your favorite childhood blanket. Plus, this holiday cocktail can be batched ahead of time and easily warmed so if you’re stuck hosting a holiday party, you can still spend time with friends and family and not be stuck in the kitchen making cocktails the whole time!

 

Cheers!
