Mulled Wine & Tequila make a delicious Christmas Margarita!
I’m SO darn excited about my new partnership with Exotico Tequila. It’s made by one of my favorite companies, Luxco, right here in Saint Louis. I’m so proud to be representing this award winning tequila as they’re made with 100% blue agave, has a great price point that can’t be beat for the quality, and look at those amazingly cool bottles.
I used their Reposado Tequila for today’s Mulled Wine Margaritas and it was absolutely perfect. With notes of vanilla, dry fruit, and spices, it really elevated traditional spiced wine. The flavor of the tequila only added to how much I love this classic mulled wine recipe!

Mulled Wine is just a fancy way of saying Hot Spiced Wine. Generally, a mulled wine recipe includes a red wine mixed with spices (usually cinnamon, cloves, allspice, but other spices can be added in). The spiced wine is heated up and served warm.
