DH thinks I am, I say, if it's in the shops, it's time to drink it! It certainly makes cleaning a more pleasurable experience.

I got my six bottles from Sainsbury's yesterday. With the 25% off it came in at £13.45 (2.24 a bottle).

I got very drunk on the Aldi one once...

I'm going to have to try the Aldi version now, just for comparison purposes.

Has anyone tried crabbie's mulled ginger wine? It is lovely, it certainly give you a glow from the alcohol content. They usually sell it in lidl in Nov/Dec.

EugenesAxe - That is, of course, why we drink it.

Bettercallsaul1 Mon 28-Oct-13 22:35:56

penguinplease - I will definitely try doing that! You can never have too much "glow"!

Sounds great.

Ooooh - how much is it at Lidl? We are stocking up (already bought a load on the Sainsbury's offer) for our Christmas carol concert. Goes down a treat with a mince pie.

No. It's windy and stuff; mulled wine is arguably medicinal in these weather conditions.

YABVU IMO but only because I can't stand the stuff

I have often said there are not enough hot alcoholic drinks. Who wants iced things when the weather is icy anyway?! confused

<adds gluhwein to Aldi shopping list>

I love Lidl mulled wine, drank lots of it last year! I heat it up in the slow cooker and it stays nice and warm! Sainsburys taste the difference one is also delicious!! Unfortunately I won't be drinking any mulled wine this year as pregnant, might have to try a non alcoholic one but it won't be the same!

YANBU. I had my first Amaretto coffee of the "festive season" at the weekend.

Theas18 Mon 28-Oct-13 17:25:33

Umm YABU only because Aldis is nicer!

penguinplease Mon 28-Oct-13 16:04:32

I add a slug of brandy once it's heated, my glow is definitely alcohol related!!

Bettercallsaul1 Sun 27-Oct-13 23:17:03

I love mulled wine, but some spoilsport told me that the alcohol evaporates off as you heat it - apparently any "warm glow" experienced is from the temperature only. Still tastes good though, and the smell conveys "Christmas" better than anything else!

I started in September. I always save a bottle from the previous year.

Sainsbury's currently have 25% off if you buy six bottles and its currently reduced to 2.99. Am stocking up in the morning grin

its halloween week. mulled wine or cider is a prerequisite

Ev1lEdna Sun 27-Oct-13 19:59:04

Ach never too early. Enjoy!

forgetmenots Sun 27-Oct-13 18:20:28

In other freezing cold countries, hot or mulled drinks are a winter thing, not a Christmas thing... I think we should all be partaking as soon as the clocks go back!

Rubybrazilianwax Sun 27-Oct-13 17:15:37

Found some here the carton lasts for ages. You just add teaspoon each time. I still have some left from last year

Rubybrazilianwax Sun 27-Oct-13 17:13:48

Our local garden centre sells these delicious in alcoholic cider or just apple juice. My dc love it. I will have a look about to see if can get them online for all mumsnetters to keep you cosy

Hot buttered rum sounds lovely...I shall rename mine butter beers smile

DipMeInChocolate Sun 27-Oct-13 17:03:34

Yanbu I've already had a bottle of the Gluhwein and 5 ofthe pack of 6 mince pies.

SilverApples Sun 27-Oct-13 17:00:41

I always start drinking mulled wine after Hallowe'en, because I try out different recipes. I've been doing it for years, and have a dozen favourites that I like equally.

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 27-Oct-13 16:58:43

I am going to make that hot buttered rum with bourbon. If it's good with rum, it can only be better with bourbon.

CointreauVersial Sun 27-Oct-13 16:37:29

My oh my, that Hot Buttered Rum sounds lush.

I just remembered I have a bottle of ready-made mulled wine somewhere (Christmas Raffle prize, I think), which would be perfect for a quick glass without all the mulling palaver.
