The transition from fall to winter is one of our favorite times of year at Santoni’s. After all, how could you not love all of the delicious food that goes hand in hand with the holiday season? As it gets colder, we like to warm up with a mug of hot mulled cider! Bearing a striking similarity to the old tradition of wassailing (from the Anglo-Saxon words meaning “good health”), mulled cider is also an easy and fun addition to your holiday table.
