With the festive season well underway, the days have been flying by and I have to admit I haven’t had much time to devote to my favourite pastime of dreaming up and testing out new recipes. Luckily, two lovely ladies I work with gave me the idea for this mulled white wine recipe, which was not only quick to refine but also fun to test.
I love mulled red wine but sometimes find it quite heavy, so this light, citrussy white wine alternative makes a refreshing change. With hints of lemon, ginger and honey, this is especially comforting if you’re at the tail end of a winter cold. The apple juice and elderflower cordial add fruity, floral notes and a sweetness that makes the wine irresistibly drinkable.
You can make this mulled wine earlier on the day you plan to use it or even the day before – just reheat it before serving. It tastes all the better when the flavours have had some time to infuse.
