A non alcoholic mulled wine recipe, absolutely perfect for winter. Yes it’s winter. This is a sad sad fact. Although I must say that I live in Toronto and it’s the mildest winter that I can remember! I used to live in Alberta for 3 wonderful (the mountains are absolutely majestic!) but incredibly cold years!
Side rant: People often ask me how cold it was in Alberta. Well, let me tell you. I moved to Alberta in the summer and noticed that all the cars had these plugs sticking out of the front hood. “Hmm, that’s pretty weird,” I thought. Then winter rolled around and I figured it out. Folks, it is so cold in Alberta that people have to plug in their cars so the engine doesn’t freeze to death! It’s true, this is a thing. Humans should not live in such cold places. Luckily the mountains and the summer months and perhaps if you are into winter activities (which I am definitely not), make up for the frigid frigid weather!
Anywho, after living in Alberta I have learned not to complain about Toronto weather (suck it up Torontians!). This winter (so far) has been especially amazing! As I type this, it’s (hold up, lemme check my trusty iphone), +4 degrees celsius! PLUS 4 people! It dun’t get no better than this folks. Perhaps I should have made virgin pina colada instead of a non alcoholic mulled wine recipe. 😛
Okay back to my non alcoholic mulled wine recipe. It’s a Sunday afternoon and what better way to spend it, then working on my blog and sipping on some mulled wine.
I am counting my blessings.
