I can't tolerate much wine, and the sugar is not for me, but this is a nice idea for fall. Thanks for sharing.

COULDN"T I USE SOMETHING OTHER THAN SUGAR? MAYBE APPLES? AND WHY THROW OUT THE VEGATABLES? I'LL TRY IT MAYBE IT WILL BECOME A DELICIOUS DIP OR SPREAD!

Interesting but I have never used sugar in my mulled cider or wine, there is no need for it as long as you have plenty of mulling spices
