When the weather gets too chilly to sip on your favorite beer, vin chaud will give you the warm, boozy buzz you’re craving. This hot mulled wine, a wintertime staple in Europe, is made by simmering red wine and fragrant spices. Bonus: the cheaper the wine, the better.

Total Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients: 
1 bottle red wine
Zest of one orange
2 cinnamon sticks, broken
5 cloves, whole
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Directions: 
1. Add all ingredients to a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Do not allow the wine to boil.
2. Stir lightly until sugar is dissolved and spices are infused, about 10-15 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and enjoy warm.
