About the mulled wine recipe ingredients

I decided to put a special spin on this Slow Cooker Spiced Mulled Wine recipe using a variety of non-traditional spices like star anise and allspice berries along with cinnamon sticks and whole cloves. (Great way to use up all those extra spices in your cabinet!)

Other different mulled wine recipe ingredients included using sorghum syrup as the sweetener. But if you don’t have sorghum in your neck of the woods, you can use maple syrup or honey instead.

To make this slow cooker mulled wine recipe unique, I used balsamic vinegar as it adds depth to this holiday cocktail. However, depending on the red wine you use and how much you like balsamic vinegar, if you don’t think Slow Cooker Spiced Mulled Wine is sweet enough add a tablespoon or two of brown sugar. Delightful!
