Advent Calendar – Day Twenty Three

Christmas Tree for Advent Calendar Day 23Day Twenty Three on the Advent Calendar and my little girl is coming home for Christmas!  And tomorrow Tim will be back, weather permitting and Christmas can begin…

So what we need is a seasonal tipple to celebrate and what could be better than mulled wine?

This is the recipe in my little black book which I always turn to…

1 bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or similar)

3/4ltr water

1 orange stuck with cloves

1 orange, slice

1 lemon sliced

3 tblsp sugar

small piece cinnamon stick

1 tspn ground ginger

2 tblsps brandy

With everything in  saucepan, bring it up to simmering point stirring until the sugar has dissolved.  Keep it at this heat for 20 min or more, but do not allow to boil or the alcohol will evaporate.  (This can be made in advance and reheated)

Serve in warmed glasses.

What more can I say?  Cheers and Bottoms Up!
