There's nothing quite like enjoying a warm glass of mulled wine when there's a bite of cold in the air. Mulled wine is easy to make, but it's essential to use fresh spices, decent wine and the right amount of heat to perfect the cocktail. Also, don't overwhelm the drink with alcohol. "A lot of people use really serious, highly alcoholic zins or cabs, but I tend to use something a little lighter to medium bodied. I really like a like cotes du rhone or even a grenache," said Caroline Styne, owner and wine director at Lucques and AOC in Los Angeles.
