I love good Mulled Wine but the wine has to be really good or I find it tastes more like drain cleaner otherwise. It's the only time I drink Booze and of course the alcohol has "burnt" off though ! Mulled "Cider" ( American Cider as Cider in the UK is what you call hard Cider) can also be really nice.


But nothing for me beats a mug of real hot chocolate , made with dark and bitter chocolate, cream if I am filling naughty and maybe a few chili flakes for a kick or just plain cinnamon.


Hot chocolate as you can find in Gerbeaud Coffee House in Budapest. You can almost tip it over and it would only dribble very slowly it is so thick !

Uh the alcohol in correctly mulled wine does not burn off. If it doesnt then its not mulled wine.

I suppose all the "mulled" wine I have had had the alcohol "boiled off" it because I have an incredibly low tolerance to alcohol and never even felt remotely tipsy with it ! Half a glass of wine would usually have me dancing on the table in wild abandon usually....

I suppose I would really hate it if it tasted of booze anyway as I loathe alcohol unless diluted in desserts.

Hot water with lemon juice, molasses, and a few spices---experiment for the right taste for you.

(I buy an off-brand pure lemon juice at my supermarket for 1.29 a quart.)

Warmed Drambuie. Or cognac. Sip very slowly late in the evening with assorted Belgian biscuits. Yes, it's that time of the year.

Hot chocolate with marshmallows was always my favorite. Mmmmm.

I love hot chocolate the way my sister makes it. Her recipe is very involved and includes coconut milk, star anise, cinnamon and vanilla. It's the best.

I also love strong coffee with half-n-half and Irish Cream.

Strong coffee in the AM, lots of cream and sugar.

At night, sweet apple cider simmered with cinnamon sticks.
