Mulled Spiked Wine from Lolinda

"I have a huge fondness for mulled wine," says Chris Lane, the bar manager at San Francisco's Lolinda. Lane's recipe is an old school one adapted from Jerry Thomas, with the important addition of rum added to each glass. You can opt out if you choose, says Lane: "There is a little more wiggle room for individual taste in punches like this one, versus carefully constructed cocktails, he says. "You can kind of feel your way around the flavors instead of being tied to precise measurements."

"I use either Smith and Cross or Banks rum," he says. "Try something that has guts!" For the wine, use something fruit forward like Syrah or Malbec.
