I mulled over this blip for a while as my tea brewed. I tried a chocolate covered gingerbread shape on the Christmas tree, but that didn't look too good so I ate it - the gingerbread not the tree!
My second attempt is this cider mulling kit I got last year but didn't use it. I drank the cider in the glass that came with the kit and never even looked at the mulling kit. Mulled cider and cranberry juice is a nice alternative to mulled wine if you are bored already with mulled wine! Not being a wine drinker I naturally prefer the cider based alternatives - but only if it's good cider!
