The history of mulled wine can be traced back to Medieval Europe. When wine went bad, it was often sweetened with honey or sugar, and flavored with spices to make it consumable again. With Europe being so cold in the winter, it also served the purpose of getting you drunk whilst keeping you warm! Bonus! In Sweden it’s known by Glog, in Finland it’s Glogi in Finland, and in Germany it’s Gluhwein; but whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious!
