In our cocktail series with Saucey — the alcohol delivery service that brings your favorite spirits to your door in under an hour — we’ve brought you an apple cider margarita and a kombucha cocktail that’s sure to impress your guests. The final seasonal offering? Mulled wine! The recipe, pulled from our gal Barefoot Contessa, has a warming hint of holiday spice and is basically heaven in a mug. (We recommend these cute mugs by Lux/Eros, scored from Consort Design.) Cheers!
