I made this Skinny Thanksgiving Spice Mulled Wine as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are always 100% my own! #SweetNLowStars
Here come the holiday gatherings and my skinny “cocktail” this month is a perfect solution since counting those calories is so hard at this time of year.
Your (adult) guests will love this Thanksgiving Spice Mulled Wine with a little sugar and spice and everything nice.
Except we’re replacing the sugar ::winkwink:: and I can assure you nobody will know the difference.
With the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves there are so many delicious flavors going on here so you can have a little holiday toast without those unnecessary added calories.
There is something about having the aroma of fresh cinnamon and cloves wafting through the house that is just welcoming and cozy. Here’s to “cozy” without needing a snuggie to cover up. Cheers!
So we have our beverage. Now… where DID I put that tray of hors d’oeuvres?? I’d really love to hear about any easy holiday cocktails you have up your sleeve.
