Avoiding cold winter weather doesn’t have to mean missing out on the joys of the season. There are plenty of ways to find happiness during the cold winter months. Diving into that stack of books you’ve been meaning to read, taking up a new hobby, keeping a playlist of your favourite music, and staying in touch with friends and family are just a few ways to boost your spirits this winter.
However you choose to spend your time, our winter wine cocktails are always a tasty and comforting choice and with when you buy wine online in Ontario, it is so easy to enjoy winter without having to face the cold.
Here are a few new ways to enjoy some old favourites this winter:
Mulled Wine – A traditional holiday drink that is too good to save for just the festive season. You can enjoy this ancient beverage whenever you crave a little winter warmth and comfort. The basis of a great mulled wine recipe is to use a delicious red wine. There are dozens of options available and you can order wine online in Toronto with fast home delivery. Then, simmer with a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and orange peel for a warm and comforting drink anytime you feel the need to shake winters chill.
Swedish Glogg – Similar to mulled wine, this toasty recipe also begins with a warmed red wine but also incorporates the additional flavours of raisins and almonds to the added spices. Traditional Glogg is prepared with the addition of a potato-based spirit called aquavit, but our version uses brandied sugar cubes to give this drink its characteristic sweetness. When buying a red wine online to make your Swedish Glogg, try a Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir or Merlot. These are all wonderful choices to use in your comforting winter wine recipe, and all available to order online with wine delivery in Ontario.
Mulled White Wine – That’s right, white wine lovers can enjoy this warm and comfy classic as well. This recipe for mulled white wine uses traditional spices of ginger, cardamom, and anise, with the addition of mint, coriander, and lemon for a fresher take on an old favourite. The recipe calls for additional sugar as well as brandy and St-Germain elderflower liqueur, so it is important to start with a white wine that is not too sweet. Look for wine online in Ontario such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or a Dry Riesling.
Sangria – Let’s face it; there are days when all we want to do is escape to a warm, sunny patio in the dead of winter. So when the mood strikes, why not embrace it by downloading a sizzling salsa playlist and relaxing with a summery sangria. Whether your signature sangria is made with white or red wine, you can order wine online in Toronto and be swept away to a tropical paradise in no time.
