Wine for the winter chill

Mulled wine, Karma Brew

There are times when layering just isn’t enough to combat the unrelenting winter chill. When that happens, there’s only one surefire solution: No, not another layer. Hot wine! Karma Brew has a spicy mulled red wine ($7) with a delightful cider-y flavor. Stirred in with more than a few shakes of cinnamon, as well as blended apples that gave it a thick, smoothie-like texture, one sip of this warm, frothy beverage quelled my shivers from head to toe. While I came to escape the biting frost, I stayed for the fruity, full-bodied sweetness. 1530 16th Street,
