    Had a glass for the first time ever recently and really enjoyed. Is there a nice brand I can get hold of for the xmas? Not looking to make my own.

    Thanks

    This.

    We picked up a bottle last week, and it’s a proper mulled wine.

    Why not have a go at making your own? This is a handy recipe I've been using for years.

    1 Bottle Red Wine (use a decent one but don't go mad)
    1/4 Bottle Brandy
    1 Bottle Red Lemonade
    Cinnamon Stick(s)
    12 Cloves (approx )
    1 Orange
    1 Lemon
    1 Inch Root Ginger
    Sugar if desired

    Stud the orange and the lemon with cloves and simmer in the lemonade along with the cinnamon sticks and ginger and sugar if used for five-ten minutes
    Add the wine and brandy and bring back up to temperature for a further five minutes
    DON'T LET IT BOIL!!

    Add a shot of fruit liqueur if you want to jazz it up a bit

    What I like to do just before serving is sprinkle in some grated orange and lemon peel
