‘Tis the season for holiday drink recipes! For the next twelve days, leading up to Christmas Day, we will be highlighting our favorite drink recipes and the bars and restaurants around the city. Drink up!
On the sixth day of Christmas…we treated ourselves to a Mulled Mystic from Distilled NY!
Who doesn’t love a nice hot mulled wine during the holidays? The spices – usually some blend of cinnamon and cloves – smell amazing and this beverage will warm you right up. And while there are lots of places in NYC serving their version of the mulled wine cocktail, we think the Mulled Mystic from beverage director Benjamin Wood at Distilled NY is the bomb.
Mulled Mystic Drink Recipe
- 1 bottle Mystic Mead (honey wine)
- 1 tsp. lavender
- 1 tsp. chamomile flower
- 4 whole cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Zest of 1/2 large lemon
Add all ingredients to a pot, then bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Run through a fine conical strainer and cheesecloth. Pour strained mead into a snifter glass and garnish with whole cloves and lemon wheel. Enjoy! (serves 4)
