Love mulled wine? Why stop there with these fabulous recipes
Mulled wine is definitely one of our Christmas foodie highlights. In fact, it's so delicious that we decided it was time to spread the spice and mull over a few other favourite tipples.
Why haven't we thought of this before? Choose a citrus-tasting white wine and infuse it with orange juice, a cinnamon stick and star anise for a warming festive treat.
Make this non-alcoholic winter warmer in the slow cooker and it'll be ready to ladle into glasses when you come back all red-nosed and ruddy cheeked from a country walk. Add a dash of bourbon or brandy, if you feel the need.
This might seem a bit weird to us Brits but mulled beer is really popular in Poland. We're willing to bet our warmest Christmas jumper that it works and it's on the list to try this weekend.
Love mulled wine? Love hot chocolate? Well good news everyone because now you can have the two together thanks to master chocolatier, Paul A Young.
The gin, red vermouth and campari cocktail get its Christmas glad rags on, garnished with an orange peel and a cinnamon stick stirrer. Don't drink too many (especially if you're at the staff party) – they're quite strong!
The Scandinavian version of our much-loved mulled wine. It’s basically the same but packs more of a punch (they add a dash of rum or cognac – well it is really cold there) and is traditionally served up with almonds and raisins.
Spiked with whisky, a few cups of this crisp apple and gingery drink will have you rockin' around the Christmas tree.
And just in case you want to stick to what you know ...
Here's a foolproof mulled wine recipe to see you through the season. Merry Christmas everyone!
