The weather is getting colder and the days are now shorter, it’s not even December yet but my soul craves that warm and comforting holiday cheer. My husband and I were out running errands. The mall was lit up with Holiday decorations and carols were playing throughout.
On a whim my husband turns to me and says,
“Let’s go home and have Panettone and mulled wine. Do we have what we need to make mulled wine?”
We didn’t. So off we went to three different places to get all the spices, the wine and the Panettone, an Italian sweet bread – a personal favourite of mine. To me it just screams holiday time, so from the beginning of November, until January it becomes a staple on our weekly grocery list. I will likely dedicate a future post entirely to panettone – that’s how much I love it!
This is honestly the first time I’ve made mulled wine myself, I make a lot of mulled hot apple cider, but never mulled wine. Even as I’m typing this I had to turn to Deep and ask,
“Why did you want mulled wine and not hot apple cider?”
Nobody wants no stinking apple cider because I don’t like apple cider”
Well there you go the answer is so simple.
What’s your favourite holiday drink?
