Glühwein, Glögg, Glintwein, Vin Brulé. Though it goes by many names, mulled wine is basically prepared in the same manner in many countries across Europe during the holidays, with small variations in the herbs, spices and flavoring agents used.

Mulled wine is typically made with red wine with some spices thrown in, heated up over the stove top (or even in a slow cooker for larger batches) and served warm to chase away the winter chills. It's incredibly simple to prepare, great for parties, and just depends on your tastes as to which version you choose to make. If you're really lazy, you can even find it already prepared in bottle form at your local liquor store or wine shop — just heat and serve.

Take a gander at the recipes below for a few different versions of mulled wine — some spice heavy, others citrus laden — to inspire your creation.
