DH thinks I am, I say, if it's in the shops, it's time to drink it! It certainly makes cleaning a more pleasurable experience.

Euphemia Sun 27-Oct-13 15:48:46

Sounds like good plan. It's fucking freezing.

My MIL said yesterday that the mulled wine season starts when the clocks go back. I'm inclined to agree!

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Oct-13 15:51:03

YABU. Warm wine? sad

You'll be bored of it by December but so what.
wine

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Sun 27-Oct-13 16:08:01

I'll never get fed up of warm spicy wine, Mmm. I don't half fancy a mince pie now though. smile

Mulled wine is not Christmassy, it is Wintery.

And the weather is rather wintery right now!

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Oct-13 16:12:14

I may put it on my list and see if I can get into the warm wine. smile

fanjofarrow Sun 27-Oct-13 16:13:09

Nah, enjoy! Especially in this weather.

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 27-Oct-13 16:16:06

Sparkling - you're right, of course, and warm wine is quite quite wrong.
So try this ---> www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/hotbutteredrum_87636 by the lovely Wayne Collins.

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Oct-13 16:20:33

Ooh Hazel what does that taste like? Butter in me alcohol? shock

penguinplease Sun 27-Oct-13 16:20:55

Yabu to be so late, I started in September.. I will never get bored of it, next on my list is advocaat

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Sun 27-Oct-13 16:20:59

Oh wow, that sounds amazing Hazel <adds rum and maple syrup to next week's shopping list>

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 27-Oct-13 16:29:50

Er, it taste of delicious.
The butter just makes it all rich and unctuous, it's not greasy or anything.

I am going to make some tonight. You know, because of the storm.

RenterNomad Sun 27-Oct-13 16:32:40

Ooh, I may have to swap from the rose!

Trigglesx Sun 27-Oct-13 16:33:12

I'd say that is the voice of reason. Now I'm interested in trying it. Off to Aldi's this week. Hopefully they will have some as well. grin

My oh my, that Hot Buttered Rum sounds lush.

I just remembered I have a bottle of ready-made mulled wine somewhere (Christmas Raffle prize, I think), which would be perfect for a quick glass without all the mulling palaver.

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 27-Oct-13 16:58:43

I am going to make that hot buttered rum with bourbon. If it's good with rum, it can only be better with bourbon.

SilverApples Sun 27-Oct-13 17:00:41

I always start drinking mulled wine after Hallowe'en, because I try out different recipes. I've been doing it for years, and have a dozen favourites that I like equally.

DipMeInChocolate Sun 27-Oct-13 17:03:34

Yanbu I've already had a bottle of the Gluhwein and 5 ofthe pack of 6 mince pies.

WholeNutt Sun 27-Oct-13 17:11:06

Hot buttered rum sounds lovely...I shall rename mine butter beers smile

Rubybrazilianwax Sun 27-Oct-13 17:13:48

Our local garden centre sells these delicious in alcoholic cider or just apple juice. My dc love it. I will have a look about to see if can get them online for all mumsnetters to keep you cosy

Rubybrazilianwax Sun 27-Oct-13 17:15:37

Found some here the carton lasts for ages. You just add teaspoon each time. I still have some left from last year

forgetmenots Sun 27-Oct-13 18:20:28

In other freezing cold countries, hot or mulled drinks are a winter thing, not a Christmas thing... I think we should all be partaking as soon as the clocks go back!

Ev1lEdna Sun 27-Oct-13 19:59:04

Ach never too early. Enjoy!
