Margaret's Hot Mulled Wine
My grandmother Margaret loved to entertain. This was one of her favorite beverages for cold, blustery, rainy days. We've served it through the years, usually during the holidays, and it's always a huge hit. If desired, serve flecked with nutmeg.
To heat the wine without boiling it and to keep it hot, I often pour it into a slow cooker and add the strained spiced water there.
