Holiday entertaining season is upon us, and with it comes the return of mulled wine. It’s hard to find a drink more perfect for a winter party — it’s warming and inviting; a festive cup of cheer that guests can help themselves to.

This year, you don’t have to choose between red and white mulled wine — you can make both.

While there are some variations between the two recipes (the white version calls for honey and fresh ginger, while the red version calls for maple syrup), they essentially feature the same ingredients: apple cider; fruit, like cranberries, oranges, and apples; and a handful of flavoring agents, like cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, whole cloves, and a vanilla bean.

Get two saucepans of these mulled wines going on the stovetop and you’ll be all set for your next holiday party.
