Last night Ian popped open a bottle of red and before he could even turn to get a glass I had the hob on and was pouring the full bottle into a pot to make mulled wine!

Look at all of that spicy goodness! I absolutely love mulled wine 🙂 It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It also makes me feel like a character from Game of Thrones… They all seem to drink hot cups of spiced wine – my kinda fantasy world.

I buy the spice mix from my local Wholefoods although I have seen packets available in other supermarkets. Bring your wine to just under a boil, add the spices and 4 tablespoons of brown sugar. Let it stand for half an hour, strain it and then reheat it to serve – ideal.
