Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a favorite cold-weather drink. Usually made from red wine, mulling spices are used to deepen the flavor of the wine and sugar or honey sweetens the drink. You can order mulled wine at restaurants and bars, but during cold weather, you'll be able to buy a mug of mulled wine from vendors. The restaurants on Old Town Square sometimes set up mulled wine stands to attract shivering patrons.
