A Drink to Warm the Soul
Mulled, it takes on quite a kick.

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly
Tra La La La La, La La La La
Tis the Season to be Jolly,
Tra La La La La, La La La La.

And, 'tis the season of mulled wine too.

A couple of years ago I was in a theatre tour during December. On the first day of rehearsal in November, one of the other actors mentioned mulled wine.

"I love mulled wine" I said.

"Wait until 20th December." They said. "By that time you will have had mulled wine and mince pies nearly every evening for a month. You won't love it by then."

I wasn't completely convinced that being offered a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie after all the shows would put me off. But, after 30 shows, I did begin to see their point. However, the human mind has an amazing capacity for forgetting, and sure enough, by last Christmas I once more loved mulled wine and mince pies.

So much so in fact, that I even created a new mulled wine recipe of my own. Mulled wine with a twist. Ginger mulled wine, which, with the added ingredient of whisky, has quite a kick. Now, assuming that you like ginger and whisky, this is one you will love. It is especially good on cold winter days, as the ginger warms your whole soul.

The Recipe (Serves 4):

240 ml Ginger Wine
120 ml Whisky
1 Orange - Sliced
1 teaspoon of mixed spice

The Method:

Put all the ingredients in a pan.
Warm until hot but don't boil. Take off the heat once it comes to the boil.
Serve hot with mince pies and other Christmas treats.

Enjoy throughout the Christmas season.

Christmas or no Christmas, I'm going to try this one at some point, though I'd better go easy on the whisky or I won't remember anything about it....
