The winter season is eagerly anticipated all year long, not just for the pleasant weather but also for the numerous celebrations. Christmas is a holiday celebrated by family get-togethers, a lavish meal, and a lot of presents. In addition to the customary meals and desserts prepared on this day, other drink recipes commemorate the happy event. Mulled wine is one such beverage that Christmas gatherings would be lacking without. Since at least the second century, the warm, soul-stirring beverage has been a component of Christmas celebrations. According to folklore, mulled wine was thought to be a nutritious, warm drink that would keep the body healthy during the winter. The mulled wine recipe was first recorded in a British cookbook from the fourteenth century. In addition to French wine, the recipe called for honey, cinnamon, cardamom, and galingale.
