There's a definate Christmas feel to todays forums,I've been out an bought 2 pressies today,Argos had reduced both by half so I was more than happy :D

I found a retro mulled wine recipe , I don't drink it, I prefer a good scotch,lol but here you go

1 Bottle of Red Wine
4 - 6 oz Sugar
Rind from 1 Lemon
2 inch (5 cm) Stick of Cinnamon
2 Cloves
Blade of Mace
Slices of Lemon, for serving


Put the Wine and Sugar into a large pan. Set on a gentle heat until the Sugar has dissolved, then add the Lemon Rind and Spices. Bring it slowly to simmering point or until the surface is covered with foam, then draw pan aside.

Have ready some warmed glasses and a jug. Strain the Wine into the jug then pour into the glasses. Put a slice of Lemon into each glass and serve.

Mace I would say is optional

Personally I can't be bothered with recipes. I just normally pour my wine into a pan, add a teaspoon of mixed spice. When warm enough, lamb it down and repeat until you couldn't give a fig whats in it. This normally occurs around the 4th glass
