We would all love to be more organized, prepared, planned during the holiday season, but sometimes the festivities get the better of us and all of our good intentions go out the window. One of our favorite seasonal drinks to enjoy is mulled wine — the warmth of the rich red wine paired with the delicious mulling spices of clove, cinnamon and allspice is a difficult libation to beat. But it does take some planning: Most spiced wine recipes recommend warming your wine and spices on low heat for a minimum of 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to meld.
If you need to whip something up a bit more quickly, our chai-infused version is a great way to produce this lovely seasonal flavor in a pinch. Watch Brandi whip it up, using Monin’s Chai Tea Concentrate.
