How to Make Spiced Wine in a Slow Cooker November 10, 2017
Hustle and bustle your way into the most wonderful time of the year with this hands-off, set it and forget it spiced wine recipe.
Raise a glass to the holidays with a glass of this warm and comforting spiced wine. Of course, you could make it on the stovetop, but we opted for a slow cooker to make things even easier and to give all the spices ample time to infuse their flavors.
But the best part? It comes together with less than 10 ingredients — the most important of which is, of course, wine. Opt for a dry red, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, and while you’re at it, make your life even easier by getting the wines delivered straight to your doorstep by joining our Wine Club!
