Already this year I have been a bit of a mulled wine FREAK and drank like 100 bottles this year already and I promise I do not have a problem, it’s just so damn tasty and automatically puts you into a festive spirit, that could be the alcohol content though…
I thought it would be really cool to make my own mulled wine, it’s something I’ve never done before and I was intrigued to see if it was better than the ready-made stuff or worse.
I’ve got to say that the length of the process what probably what put me off the most, you have to simmer the wine with the spices for 20 minutes and then leave to stand for 5 and when you’re thirsty and wanting a drink you don’t really want to wait 25 minutes for one.
Asides from the amount of time that it took to make, it was absolutely bloody gorgeous. THE BEST mulled wine I have ever had in my life (so far!) and I will definitely be doing it again not just for the taste but for the amazing smell that filled my home that night and following morning.
it was the perfect ending to a jam-packed Christmas shopping day and finally with 19 days to go until the big day and most of the financial stuff out the way I am definitely ready to start the season’s celebrations.
