Muscat & Tangerine Mulled Wine Recipe

Muscat & Tangerine Mulled Wine Recipe

I hate the cold, there I've said it. Yes, I do enjoy the end of year festivities and such like, but the cold? Not so keen. But as far I'm concerned, some of the season's upsides are the mandatory fluffy socks, woolly hats (that hide a multitude of hair sins...), fireside snuggling and of course, the good ol' hot toddy!! ;)  So over the years I've tried an array of flavors and, this sweet mulled wine is one of my faves!

Styling and photography by Banner Events Thanksgiving is mainly an American Holiday, but I just LOVE the idea of a time dedicated to giving thank to the things we're....well, grateful for! This should be an internationally recognized and practiced Holiday in my view! :) This year started off on a sour note for me, but also there have been so many joyous moments and things to genuinely be thankful for, so Thanksgiving to me is mainly about reflection and counting blessings rather than a big party...
