Give winter a warm farewell with a Mulled Wine! This comforting mix of flavors creates a soothing but playful cocktail that will kindle an intimate atmosphere for a romantic night in. 
Recipe: via William Sonoma
  • 12 whole cloves 
  • 2 nutmegs, cracked into pieces with a hammer 
  • 2 bottles (each 750ml) dry red wine 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • Stripped zest from 2 oranges and 2 lemons, plus more zest for garnish 
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice 
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Tie cloves and nutmeg pieces in a small square of cheesecloth, or put them in a large metal tea ball. 

In a large nonaluminum pot, combine the wine, sugar, orange and lemon zests, orange and lemon juices, and cinnamon sticks. Add the clove-and-nutmeg bundle. Heat over medium-low heat until steam begins to rise from the pot and the mixture is hot, about 10 minutes; do not let it boil. Remove the clove-and-nutmeg bundle. Keep the wine warm over very low heat until ready to serve. 

Pair with Pleasure Garden Aromatic Massage Oil which has a euphoric floral blend of rose, jasmine and sandalwood-designed to promote feelings of joy and release inhibitions.
