Mulled Apple Tea




In case you haven’t realised, if you don’t like anything spiced, you are going to HATE my advent calendar!! I love spices all year round, which is probably one of the reasons I love Christmas so much. The smell of mulled wine and gingerbread filling the air is my idea of heaven! If you don’t drink alcohol or caffeine but you still want something warming for the winter, this is the perfect recipe. And you can even drink it in the mornings or take it in a flask on your travels! This is a great drink to make up and serve to friends for a Christmas gathering or film night, and it has an instant festive feel. It is also super quick to make and no-fuss, meaning you can easily make up a few lots (yes, it is addictive). Just multiply the recipe for the number of people you want to serve!
