Charles Dickens gets the credit for elevating mulled wine into a traditional holiday drink. While mulled wine appeared in several of the beloved novelist’s books, it was its appearance in his popular short story, A Christmas Carol, that sealed its place in Christmas culinary history.

When Clarence the Angel visits a modern bar, he considers ordering a “flaming rum punch,” decides “no, it’s not cold enough for that,” then orders: “Mulled wine, heavy on the cinnamon and light on the cloves. Off with you, me lad, and be lively!
