    This is way too sweet for us, but the flavour is good, especially with the lemon slices. I'm not sure I'll try this again. But if I do, I would use less or no additional sugar.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Extremely easy and the kids all loved this as a special Christmas drink. Definitely will make this our special Christmas day drink tradition!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Would have given 4 stars as this is a very basic version, but this gets 5 stars instead due to having ingredients found in my kitchen as opposed to more specialised or complicated mulling mixes. Very easy to assemble and great taste.  -  21 Jul 2008
