Slow-Cooker Blood Orange Fizzy Mulled Wine

Photo: Johnny Miller; Styling: Sarah Smart

The slow cooker offers great convenience here, keeping the stovetop open for meal prep. Pouring the soda into the hot wine right at the time of service brings the temperature down enough to drink immediately. Change out the orange slices for fresh when serving to punch up the look.
