Mulled wine

This Mulled Wine was being served in the Small Museum over the weekend (and will be served there for the coming three, or so, weekends):

1 box cheapest red table wine (aka vin de plonk)
Half a 75cl bottle of fruit wine; damson or elderberry seem to do very nicely (see Lindisfarne Fruit Wines)
Whole jar of 340g honey, plus a bit more, to taste
3 sachets of mulled wine spice, eg. Schwartz

Heat gently till nice and warm, then drink! I scaled it down for home, with 1 bottle red wine 75cl, around 1/3 honey, 1/3 bottle of Damson fruit wine and one mulled wine sachet. Had a nice time slurping it, and offered some to Batman when he came home from work. He even had seconds, so it must be nice. Most of of the alcohol was 'burnt' away, so we didn't get too tipsy :-)

I only do a taster to check if it needs more honey - honest :-)
