Mulled Wine tips or reccomendations

Post by DocDoesFarming » Sun Dec 15, 2019 9:04 am

Christmas is round the corner and we all know what that means, time to binge watch TV Christmas Specials like Father Ted, Bottom and League of Gentlemen as well as watching those classic Christmassy films like National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Scrooged and the all time classic Die Hard.

And of course there's nothing better than watching one of these than with a nice warm possibly extremely large glass of mulled wine and a blanket snuggled up with a loved one.

Soooooo, does anyone have any Mulled Wine recommendations they'd like to share or tips on buying the ingredients?

A couple of times we bought some premixed spices from a friends shop that actually turned out quite well, he had imported them from Germany I think but sadly no longer does.

Not much help there I guess :cry:

Nice idea - I used to make it but haven’t tried in Japan yet. Do you have a Kaldi nearby? I get my spices from there. They had cinnamon sticks last time I checked.

Sadly no Kaldi near me here :(

What did you stick in your mulled wine? Did you try and test out other flavours?

I just pulled a recipe off the internet - didn’t experiment very much. Can’t remember exactly what I put in. I do like to use thin orange slices though. I just got one of those packs off the amazon link gombechan put up. Haven’t tried it yet!
