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.

its halloween week. mulled wine or cider is a prerequisite

I started in September. I always save a bottle from the previous year.

Sainsbury's currently have 25% off if you buy six bottles and its currently reduced to 2.99. Am stocking up in the morning grin

I love mulled wine, but some spoilsport told me that the alcohol evaporates off as you heat it - apparently any "warm glow" experienced is from the temperature only. Still tastes good though, and the smell conveys "Christmas" better than anything else!

I add a slug of brandy once it's heated, my glow is definitely alcohol related!!

Umm YABU only because Aldis is nicer!

YANBU. I had my first Amaretto coffee of the "festive season" at the weekend.

I love Lidl mulled wine, drank lots of it last year! I heat it up in the slow cooker and it stays nice and warm! Sainsburys taste the difference one is also delicious!! Unfortunately I won't be drinking any mulled wine this year as pregnant, might have to try a non alcoholic one but it won't be the same!

I have often said there are not enough hot alcoholic drinks. Who wants iced things when the weather is icy anyway?! confused

<adds gluhwein to Aldi shopping list>

YABVU IMO but only because I can't stand the stuff

No. It's windy and stuff; mulled wine is arguably medicinal in these weather conditions.

Ooooh - how much is it at Lidl? We are stocking up (already bought a load on the Sainsbury's offer) for our Christmas carol concert. Goes down a treat with a mince pie.

Sounds great.

Bettercallsaul1 Mon 28-Oct-13 22:35:56

penguinplease - I will definitely try doing that! You can never have too much "glow"!

Bettercallsaul1 Mon 28-Oct-13 22:38:47

EugenesAxe - That is, of course, why we drink it.

I'm going to have to try the Aldi version now, just for comparison purposes.

Has anyone tried crabbie's mulled ginger wine? It is lovely, it certainly give you a glow from the alcohol content. They usually sell it in lidl in Nov/Dec.

I got my six bottles from Sainsbury's yesterday. With the 25% off it came in at £13.45 (2.24 a bottle).

I got very drunk on the Aldi one once...
