Easy-to-Make Mulled Wine

Wine purists might scoff, but there is something comforting about a slightly sweet, fruity, spicy warm red wine, which is what this Low FODMAP Mulled Wine is.

This is a great party beverage for the colder months. If you set it out in a punch bowl, just make sure the kids know that this is for adults only.

Start with a somewhat dry but fruit red wine for best results, such as a Merlot or Zinfandel.

Wine, Fruit – and Sugar

Mulled wine always has a little sweetener. I like brown sugar in this recipe as its complex flavor adds to the finished result, along with the fruit. It’s one of those situations where the finished item is more than a sum of its parts.

Pay attention to the parts, ahem, the ingredients.
