The Perfect Drink for Winter Nights in Kelowna

Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine

Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a popular North American beverage with deep European roots. Traditionally served steaming hot during Halloween and Christmas, this wintertime favourite consists of red wine, mulling spices, and often raisins. Some even chill their mulled wine and drink once cold. For me, mulled wine is best served hot and holds the spot as my favourite winter warmer because it's always favourful and comforting on chilly winter night.

Grown Up Chai Tea  (Called, "PS: Chai Love You")

Enjoy this black tea cocktail with a delicious combination of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, tea, and gin. In this recipe, I used Urban Distilleries'' Spirit Bear Gin because it is made from local grains, and 10 fruits and botanicals including Okanagan apples and Okanagan lavender.  This fragrant local gin is the perfect spirit to match with the spiced chai tea that is central to this drink.
