It’s four days to Christmas and I’m sure you have all if not most of your presents ready. The turkey, lamb, gammon or chicken is sitting comfortably in the freezer ready to be made into a sumptuous meal for Christmas lunch. Today we’ll be making a Christmas favourite – Mulled wine. It is a beverage made from wine with mulling spices and raisins. Depending on your crowd this year, you may decide to make it alcoholic or not. Usually drank hot or warm in the cold seasons, so if you are in wet or cold regions this holiday season, this may well be a great drink to try.
After all the meals we’ve been cooking this festive season, it’s only fair that we include a drink or two recipes right? Drinks are a must for the Christmas table (but do drink responsibly and DO NOT drink and drive). From speciality wines, to a bit of cognac, a touch of sherry, whisky for the brave, and non-alcoholic beverages for the religious, and of course those who do not care for any, Christmas is a time of liberation, food and drink-wise!
