Mulled Wine Giftbags!

My favourite drink of the festive season is Mulled Wine. It’s sweet, spicy, warming and hearty – the ultimate wintery treat. When popped on the stove on a winter evening, it fills your home with the most signature of Christmas scents. As a foodie, it’s inevitable that my friends and family will receive an assortment of homemade edible treats throughout December and a guaranteed winner is always my Mulled Wine gift bag. To celebrate the incredible range of Waitrose & Partner’s wine, I thought I’d share my little ‘how-to’ with you! Heading to a friend’s for dinner? It’s the perfect way to pimp up your ‘thank you’ wine. Stuck with the new girl from work as your Secret Santa? You can’t go wrong! Want to win over the grandparents and get on the nice list? Red wine and festive spices will do just that.
