It always disappoints me if I'm offered mulled wine - would rather a decent glass of untampered with red

yes I do! made it for the first time last christmas and will be making it again. I am a sucker for seasonally appropriate drinks grin.

I would maybe draw the line at Snowballs for Christmas but otherwise I will drink for the occasion!

I love mulled wine.

AbbaFan Sun 26-Oct-08 20:37:28

Love it, but with a mince pie!

BigBadMouseInHauntedHouse Sun 26-Oct-08 20:38:33

OOOOOooooooh yes! I love it grin

<blatently ignores incredible desire for any form of alcohol atm>

I love it, but know people who hate it so always offer "untampered with" as well as mulled.

MorticiaAnnSpookington Sun 26-Oct-08 20:39:06

but it's horrid !!!!! nasty old bits of spiced twig and cloves masking rough old wine - yuck

Flum Sun 26-Oct-08 20:39:06

I love it too!

MorticiaAnnSpookington Sun 26-Oct-08 20:39:35

lilolil - that's very civil of you

scaryfucker Sun 26-Oct-08 20:41:28

yep love it, but only when its proper mulled wine

not that nasty stuff for £2.99 from the supermarket that is only about 6% alcohol!

I make my own and it is potent!

MorticiaAnnSpookington Sun 26-Oct-08 20:46:22

well I'm in the minority here grin

I do have my civil moments Morticia!

expatinscotland Sun 26-Oct-08 20:47:03

No, no I really don't like it.

BroccoliSpears Sun 26-Oct-08 20:47:10

Oh dear, my grins look bald.

grin grin - that's better.

themoon666 Sun 26-Oct-08 20:48:18

Vile stuff.

Agree with the poster who said its just old spicy twigs grin

PillowOfDOOM Sun 26-Oct-08 20:49:21

Love, love, love it gringringrin

MegGriffin Sun 26-Oct-08 20:51:50

I Like it, and snowballs blush

scaryfucker is right. It has to be well made otherwise you get a load of tickly grit at the back of your throat. The well made stuff is fantastic though - fills the room with all those smells that create an image of christmases you'd like to be able to remember but somehow can't...

AbbaFan Sun 26-Oct-08 20:53:23

ooohhhh snowballs.... I drank loads of those last year!

ja9 Sun 26-Oct-08 20:53:57

LynetteScavo Sun 26-Oct-08 20:54:29

I love it!

ShePeeTeePee Sun 26-Oct-08 20:55:14

slurp, hic!

Beachcomber Sun 26-Oct-08 20:55:43

Smells nice but tastes like shit.

Give me an unmucked about with glass of red any day.

PortofinoPumpkin Sun 26-Oct-08 20:55:53

Oooh yes - roll on the Xmas markets! It IS the taste of winter to me.
