Imbibe the Vibe of Love
A Simple Aphrodisiac to Warm Someone’s Heart
It’s cold out there! Feel like staying in? Why not cozy up on the couch, stream a movie, pop some corn and warm up with an inviting spiced mulled wine.
1 Bottle Red Table Wine
1 Liter Cranberry, Blood Orange Juice or Apple Cider
1/3 cup of honey or sugar
1 tsp ground allspice or dried allspice berries
8 Whole Cloves
2 Star Anise
2 Cinnamon Sticks
Slice orange into half moons, mix all ingredients in a pot on the stove and simmer for 20 minutes or in a crockpot on low for 2-3 hours. Serve in mugs with cinnamon stick, star anise and an orange slice.
The warm fuzzy feeling this drink imparts just may be mistaken for love.
