slow cooker mulled wine

warming your mulled wine in a slow cooker frees up a hob, and keeps it warm without boiling it (which will cook off all the alcohol).

This is a loose recipe, more of a suggestion for a delicious, warming, festive drink. You can switch out any ingredients, and play with the flavours.

This is the way we like it - flavourful and slightly tart.
