Lots of people like mulled wine at Christmas but I have never tasted it. There is something about warm wine that puts me off. This year however, the landlady of my local pub is making her own and insists that I try it. I will let you know how it goes!
I had my first taste a few days ago and it was boiling hot! I thought it was meant to be just warm? I don't think I would have it again though. I'd much rather have just a cold glass of red wine although it did taste quite fruity.
I have tasted it at last and it was like drinking a very sweet, fruity, warm drink. I could taste cinnamon, vanilla and maybe cloves which I normally don't like. It wasn't bad but I wouldn't rush to drink it again.
