    We're having a mulled wine and mince pie party on wednesday and I was wondering if any of you have any outstanding mulled wine recipes. I've got a few from the internet, but there's quite a lot of variety in the recipes and I definitely want a good one!

    Any fool proof (;)) ones greatly appreciated!

    I prefer to go heavy on the cinnamon and ginger and lighter on the cloves and nutmeg. Plenty of sugar, and a good brandy, although the more suicidal can add kirsch for that extra hit.

    Did you know that too much nutmeg can make you psychotic? http://www.answers.com/topic/nutmeg

    Wife does mulled wine at new year but being a boring non drinker (yes a bass player who does not drink) I have never tried it.

    Takes 12 months to get the stains out of the kitchen worktop though.

    Think Ciff Richards has a nice recipe for mistletoe and wine ;) - although I always thought mistletoe was poisonous and that's not going to taste that good so suggest just have it without - then that would be wine which is not a bad thing. Altough I did find mistletoe wine in Australia

    Note to the gullible please do not try this suggested recipe (also did you know that gullible isn't even in the dictionary)

    I usually make it using the Schwartz herbs sachet and just add oranges and cloves anyway. Although you may need a bit extra sugar if you're doing this.

    Trouble is he's as bad as the other basses even without a drink. God knows what he'd be like if he did drink.

    A good t-total substitute for mulled wine is mulled apple juice. I like it when I'm in a non-alcoholic mood.

    OK...so Mulled wine was a success! I went for a combination of Delia, a mulled wine tea bag and some Twigge genius!
    Drinking from 4 in the afternoon and then all evening isn't that advisable...have woken up with what I believe is a Chicken burgular on my desk!
