Anyone ever had mulled wine? Make it?

I've decided we need to have mulled wine Christmas Eve, but we'll be out with family until 3-4... so I looked up slow cooker mulled wine and was pleasantly surprised to discover it was a real thing! So now I need a recipe, there are tons out there, but if anyone happens to have one please share!

My mom's recipe has a bunch of sugar, but I usually add less and it's just as yummy.

1 bottle cranberry juice
1 bottle red wine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 whole cloves
1 tbsp whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks

Boil sugars with cranberry juice to dissolve. Add wine and spices; simmer at least an hour in the crockpot.

After I boil the sugar with the juice, I dump everything in the crockpot and let it do it's thing. So yummy!

Thanks Kim! That sounds delicious, I've never added juice but it sounds amazing. I'm going to test this one for sure!

I usually just pick one at random, lol. I don't really know the difference between reds, so I just go in and grab something.
