Warm, cozy, and perfect for winter, this German mulled wine is fragrant with cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and citrus. It's sweetened with a bit of sugar and given an extra kick from a little brandy. Making it in a slow cooker means it's easy to keep it warm indefinitely and guests can serve themselves as they wish. Get the recipe. See more slow cooker drinks here.
