It's Beginning.........

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.   Mmmmm!!  Hubby has made, and bottled, his annual batch of mulled wine.  The whole house smelled amazing.

It does come with a health warning and you should definitely not drive after drinking it.  

Four bottles of red wine - cheap stuff will do.
Star Anise
Cinnamon sticks
Bay leaves
Small amount of water

Basically - boil until it's ready!!  Add 2/3 bottle of brandy last off - again the cheapest.  You don't want the alcohol to evaporate. 

Serve hot in small amounts.

If you would like further details let me know and I'll get hubby to tell all.



  1. Recipes & books recommendations, two of my favourite things. Thank you for sharing this. I've always wanted to use the Star Anise for something, so this is a perfect reason to buy some! :)

  2. I will be giving it a try as the recipe sounds wonderful.
