Mulled wine in winter

I've been to Europe in winter and there were street carts selling it in some of the cities. I quite like it and it really warmed me up while sightseeing.

Is mulled wine something that is common in NYC in winter?

You won't find it served at street carts -- it's illegal to consume alcohol on the street or in parks in New York -- but there are restaurants and bars that serve it.

The Brindle Room serves it year-round, I know: http://brindleroom.com/index.html

As does Black Mountain:

But it can be found as a seasonal special elsewhere. Glancing at Yelp, I see people mention having it in the winter at Spuyten Duyvil, Pierre Loti, Ayza, and, unsurprisingly (given that it's a Christmas explosion), Rolf's.

In year's past they used to have it outside at the South Street seaport.

You can get it, but it is not as common as in, say, Europe. (such as gluhwein in Germany). We also have hot mulled (non-alcoholic) apple cider. But, as mentioned, these are not common "walk on the street" kind of beverages. Also, you might find eggnog in some bars which is another holiday drink.

I remember seeing something along those lines at the Columbus circle holiday markets in years past.

While reading the article in thread below I noticed mulled wine and remembered the question about it on this forum. (The real marvel here is that I remembered something...)

We were highly amused to be offered mulled wine in Bryant Park last week -made with non-alcoholic wine!

Our liquor laws are local (and sometimes a bit strange, out west there are still "dry" counties, in NY they still can't serve alcohol before noon on Sundays, etc.) and licenses to sell liquor are expensive and difficult to get. Restaurants may have mulled wine made from alcoholic wine, but I doubt that any street vendors have liquor licenses.

Well I was at the union square holiday markets yesterday afternoon and I didn't have the mulled wine (non alcoholic) but I did have a hot apple cider. It was nice!
