Hi again,

It wouldn’t be Bonfire Night without a hot glass of delicious mulled wine. That’s why this week I’ve chosen our November bestseller as my Wine of the Week. It’s full of winter flavour, has a beautiful aroma, and, to make it even better, it’s included in our huge Buy Any 6 Save 25% wine sale (choose from 600 wines).

About the wine

It’s a red wine blended with subtle flavours of cinnamon cloves and the zest of oranges and lemons, providing a delicious drink with lots of spice and fruit character – here’s how I’ll be serving mine next week.

How to make Julian’s mulled wine

Serve warm to bring out the zest fruity aromas and flavours.

To heat, transfer the contents to a saucepan and heat gently until hot.

Add sugar to taste and do not allow to boil. Alternatively, microwave a mug full on ‘high’ for maximum of 60 seconds.

Please note that this is an approximate guideline as microwaves vary. Take care when removing the hot liquid from the microwave.

For extra flavour, add 4 tablespoons of brandy, or even a splash of Cointreau (depending on your mood).

Alternatively, you can heat your mulled wine in a slow cooker: just heat gently with the heat set on high for about thirty mins.

Top tip

Try a Bonfire Night cocktail. Top up your mulled wine with a little sparkling wine. Perfect for a party.

Price: £4.99 (currently on offer as part of our Buy Any 6 Save 25% wine sale)

So, that’s this week’s Wine of the Week. I’d love to hear your thoughts too so please remember to post comments here, on Facebook and Twitter, or simply leave a review on the product page.

Happy Bonfire Night!
