Christmas Countdown #2: Easy mulled wine

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me...

This is a big fat shortcut to making the most perfect mulled wine!

Mulled wine 'teabags' containing all the seasonal aromatic spices you need for the perfect warming tipple. No longer do you have to faff about adding sticks of cinnamon and grating nutmeg, then straining before serving... just add a bottle of your favourite red and a good helping of brown sugar... and relaaaax!

My friend gave me this pack of six mulled wine spices, which she bought from Hootons Home Grown on Anglesey. If you're not lucky enough to visit my homeland before Christmas and can't find anything similar near you, here is a simple and effective recipe from the BBC. Enjoy.

[I have also found a very similar idea for mulled cider, these look great!]
