GARAM MASALA MULLED WINE

Arvinda's Garam Masala contains a lot of the spices you would find in a mulled wine, namely cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. 

Mulled wine is the perfect warming festive drink to serve during the colder months, paired with appetizers or sweets. It sure would be lovely to sip this around a crackling fireplace in the midst of the festive season.
