mulled wine kit
Suma Mulled Wine Spice Kit

This is a very nice pyramid shaped kit with 6 cotton sachets in it. It’s all the dry ingredients you need to make your own mulled wine! There are instructions on the pack:
1. Put 2 sachets in a pan with 1 bottle of red wine and 3 tbps of brown sugar (also available in the shop). Stir and bring to the boil.
2. Simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Allow to stand for 10 minutes.
4. Remove sachets and reheat – serve and enjoy!
Xmas 2015 rangeHow easy is that? The sachets can then be disposed of in the composter as the ingredients are only cinnamon, orange peel, cloves and allspice, wrapped in cotton bags and sealed with cotton thread. For 6 sachets, it’s £2.95, making this about £1 for each bottle of wine you use – what a great deal!

B Green Spiced BerryFor a non-alcoholic version, try using Bottle Green Spiced Berry Cordial. This is £4.45 for a 500ml bottle which makes 22 servings. This has aronia juice, blackcurrant juice with spring water and cinnamon, cloves, lemon, nutmeg and orange. It’s equally delicious hot or cold!
