5. Mulled Wine
Last but certainly not least, this drink is a must try this year! It may seem like a lot of ingredients, but it’s super simple to make, it tastes amazing and you can make as much as you want which is perfect for gatherings!

• 1 vanilla bean
• 1 star anise
• 1 sliced orange

Your gonna combine all these ingredients into a sauce pan and let that simmer for about 25min.
The best result is to allow this to sit overnight in the refrigerator or out, which ever or works fine!
Strain out the fruits when your ready, top it off with a fresh cinnamon stick and/or cranberries!
An amazing new and cozy way to enjoy your wine this winter!
