If you’re unfamiliar with mulled wines, you may not know exactly what to pair with this warm fall libation — but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Earthy stews can complement the prominent spices in the wine. That makes hearty soups made with butternut squash, roasted pumpkin, or creamy tomato basil a comforting, flavorful combination that will keep you warm on cool fall nights. If soups aren’t your thing, you can serve mulled pumpkin spice wine alongside roasted proteins like whole-roasted chicken or turkey. Accompany these filling meats with a medley of roasted root vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, and parsnips for a warm, well-rounded meal packed with nutrition.
If you’re serving guests, assemble an assortment of artisanal cheeses, cured meats, crackers, and bread — the toasty wine’s spices will play well with a variety of cheese flavors and the charcuterie’s meat selection will provide the spread with a savory richness.
From sweet potato pie topped with whipped cream to nutty chocolate chip cookies or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, mulled pumpkin spice wine may complement a wide variety of autumn-approved dessert dishes to boot. And don’t hesitate to garnish it with additional ingredients like fresh fruit, star anise, and cinnamon sticks.
