Everybody likes mulled wine at Christmas. However, if you’ve just come in from a long walk in the cold, having passed a brass monkey crying his little eyes out, it can be a bit of a kerfuffle to start messing around with cinnamon sticks, grated nutmeg, etc when you just want a quick warming drink.

Fortunately, you can buy mulling syrup. This just needs adding to some red wine in a saucepan (and an optional dash of Cointreau, brandy, etc), warm gently (DO NOT BOIL), and job done. Lakeland sell a very nice Gourmet Mulling Syrup, although others are available on Amazon.

Mulling syrup is the special ingredient for my own little concoction the Christmas Costs Cocktail.

  1. Take two measures of vodka (or gin), one measure of sweet vermouth and half a measure of mulling syrup.
  2. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
  3. Drink.
  4. Repeat as necessary.
