Frozen Mulled Wine

Living in the south, the Fall is both hot and cold. You will wake up and it is cool, the air is crisp and it feels like Fall. You just can't wait to get home and make a pot of soup or gumbo even. Or sip hot apple cider or mulled wine by a fire. But then by noon, Oh my! It is time to go home and put on your shorts and forget cooking it is too hot! Well here is a way to celebrate Fall in the south without losing your cool; Frozen Mulled Wine. It is so so good! I love the sweet spicy apple flavors with the wine. All the warm flavors of fall but very refreshing if it is still warm outside. The idea came to me last year but temperatures suddenly dropped and it was too cold to post a frozen drink recipe. Now is the perfect time to make a pitcher and share it with your friends. I originally wanted to use sugar free spiced apple cider mix but I could not find it. As soon as I do I am going to try it. I have tried making it with six envelopes of spiced apple cider mix and it is too sweet. Four was kind of bland. But five is perfect! Plus there are ten envelopes in the box, so with one box of spiced apple cider mix and a bottle of wine you have a great gift or a party. I hope you enjoy this cool Fall treat. I am going back to the frig for a refill.

Frozen Mulled Wine
Serves 4


1/2 a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon
5 envelopes of spiced apple cider mix
3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Ice to fill blender
Apple slices for a garnish


Combine wine, spiced apple cider mix and pumpkin pie spice in a blender container. Blend until mix is dissolved into wine. Fill blender with ice (at least to the 6 cup line). Blend until ice is finely crushed and smooth. Garnish with apple slices and serve with a straw for sipping.

This frozen spicy apple wine delight is also 
delicious made with Pinot Grigio.

  2. Is it wrong to want to throw a party just to have an excuse to make this? I'm going to say that it's a perfectly reasonable feeling to have.

    Living in the south, I always think that heating and cooling systems as well as our wardrobes develop personality disorders in the fall. You just never know!

    I'm featuring your frozen mulled wine when tonight's party goes live. Can't resist! Thank you for linking, Denise!
