Ginger mulled wine is an easy, warmly-spiced drink that will fill your kitchen with a wondrous aroma. This cozy, semi-homemade version features a spice shortcut with a kick from fresh ginger.
If after simmering you find the ginger flavor to be too strong, you can add equal quantities of wine and cider and heat to slightly dilute. That said if you're not sure on how you'll feel about ginger's bite here, I suggest starting with a smaller quantity of grated ginger and tasting throughout to see if you'd like to add more.
This recipe yields 1 quart.
