Keep drinks warm all night
On winter nights, we love to welcome guests in from the cold with a steamy mug of mulled wine or a hot toddy—and the slow cooker makes it a cinch to whip up a big batch and keep it warm for hours. One delicious sip: In cooker, combine 2 (25 oz.) bottles red wine, 2 cups apple cider, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 star anise, 4 orange slices and 6 cloves. Cook on low
3 hrs. or as long as needed.
