The Mulled Fume Noir
Mother nature threatened to burn us down in 2018. However, with the help of the fire fighters and changing winds we escaped unscathed, except for our thin-skinned Pinot Noir. Too smokey for our liking we mulled over our options and crafted The Mulled Fume Noir. Spiced with star anise, cardamom, cinnamon bark, and cloves; just add ¼ cup of sugar, ½ sliced orange, and fortify with ¼ cup brandy or spiced rum. Gently warm over the stove and garnish with an orange slice or cinnamon stick and you’re ready for both the relatives and the holidays.
