Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a new thing to me. When I was younger I use to think why would you warm up wine and add all these horrible spice in them?!

Now that I am older and wiser! I know why.

The thing was I never had a good Mulled Wine before I went to Emj school Christmas faye. The school cook had made these Mulled Wine for all the parents. As someone who did not like Mulled Wine, I only took a glass because I was so cold. But after I took a sip I was hooked.

The next day at my local pub I ordered a glass of Mulled Wine as soon as I saw they were serving them. I was so disappointed! It was nothing like what the school cook gave us. The spice was so strong that it over powered the wine. Yuk. That was when I realised that not all Mulled Wine a equal.

After a lot of asking (not just from me) the school cook shared the recipe on their Facebook page.

I have only adjust it ever so slightly to make it easier for me to use the measurement I wanted (a whole bottle of wine)

As always I took a glass over for my lovely neighbour to see how it taste and they loved it too. One thing that they have said is – that because it is milder in spice to most of the Mulled Wine he have had, you can drink more of it!! We were thinking that, it would be perfect on a late summer evening after the sun has gone down and you still want to sit outside.

Mulled Wine, it is not just for Christmas!!

Enjoy
