    This was so easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious – neighbours and friends love it too. This recipe will certainly become a Christmas tradition. I added an extra cinnamon stick and 2 dried bay leaves and 5 black pepper corns and 1 star anise and used unrefined Demerara sugar – highly recommended!  -  27 Dec 2011


    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yesssssssssss! Added some cider on one occasion and some rum on another occasion. deeeeelicious. Have made a few batches of this mulled wine recipe over the festive period and it just seems to get better each time, delicious if made a day in advance! Try Blossom Hill Smooth and Spicey red wine, I find it works rather well. Enjoy.  -  28 Aug 2013


    Made this for a party and it went down very well. I do t like cloves so left them out and some people commented on how nice it was to have a clear looking with e rather than the murky one you normally get. Will definately make again.  -  10 Dec 2017
