Just when I’m ready to start thinking that spring is right around the corner, it snows! Winter seems to be hitting late this year. Don’t fret, I have a little something that’ll warm you up. Mulled wine was a big thing when I lived in Germany many moons ago, and it definitely was the most delightful drink we sipped on to warm up, walking around the Holiday Markets. Now here’s the Mulled Gin! It’s a bit stronger, but just as delicious. Have one by the fire, or by the radiator, whatever works, but have one…..

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Van Gogh Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
  • 4 oz apple juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • one cinnamon stick, one star of anise, ginger
  • small pinch of chili flakes
  • orange zest and cinnamon stick to serve

Heat gin, apple juice, honey, cinnamon stick, anise and ginger without boiling on the stove. Pour into glass. garnish with orange zest, cinnamon stick and/or star anise.
