Some of the forumites at the Berri weekend became somewhat enchanted after they'd had a couple of mugs of Annette's brew.......mind you, some of them were talking in shorthand too!!! LOL
Anyway, SWMBO has just asked me to post the recipe for anybody game enough to give it a try.
Please note however, that neither Annette nor myself will accept responsibility for the demise of any number of brain cells as a result of the consumption of this medicine.
INGREDIENTS:

half cup of sugar
6 slices of lemon
6 slices of orange
6 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1 flagon (or cask) of claret
note: wash fruit prior to adding to liquid. May put slices in microwave for 30 seconds...

METHOD:

Put all ingreients in a stainless steel or enamelled pot.
Heat gently, strain and serve.
Can be re-heated as required.
NB" bottle of soda water may be added if desired.

Caution: stand well back after lighting the fuse. (sorry I chucked that bit in myself).

Roachie - mate, haven't had that for years!!

Used to have in the Army lodge when we went up skiing - liked it so much, we had it at my bucks night. That was 12 years ago - haven't given it a thought since.

Beautiful stuff ;-)

Cheers,

Ivan

Interesting name - "Mulled" wine - I thought you were going to say put it in an orchy bottle with a hose coming out of it - light the fuse.
Sounds interesting. Gotta be better than sitting round a camp fire drinking "Carva" - muddy water drink from Fiji.

Hey Roachie, Annette should have made some at Woomera. Could have sent a few rockets into orbit. Something to remember for next time. Lol

Hi Roachie...that is the first sensible post I have seen from you for a long time...hahahaha

Judith says Many Thanks to Annette for the recipe.

No doubt we will soon be in a state of torpor drinking Annettes brew. It made me sleep right through my regular bottle times and I did not even hear all the crap that was being espoused at the camp fire on Saturday night :-)

My father (German) used to give my sister and i gluhwein as kids when we were sick with a cold, only about a half cup, the fumes used to open up the blocked nose, and i suppose the alcohol made us sleep well. Might try the soda next time i make some up.

Cheer's Paul.......

Paul,
I can imagine it would have that effect on kids' nasal passages (and tear ducts too LOL)

The recipe talks about the soda water, but we've never added any to our brew......might be okay if it was cold I spose.
