Mulled spice bags are fun to make around the holiday season and can be a delicious addition to a warm winter beverage. You'll need one wine cork for each bag, and get some small cotton spice bags and some twine at your local craft store.
Next, you need some mulling spices. You can develop your own recipe, but some common spices to use are dried cinnamon sticks, allspice, clove, nutmeg and dried orange peel. At your party, put the spices out along with your bags, twine and corks and encourage everyone to experiment a bit with the different scents. Once you get the right mix, tie off the bag with the twine, and then tie a wine cork to the top. The cork not only provides decoration, it also serves as a float when you mull some hot cider.
