Getting Into The Festive Spirit

In Sweden you can buy Mulled wine easily, but not here in Australia.  Luckily, IKEA, sells their version of Swedish Mulled Wine, so I always stock up with a few bottles and sometimes enjoy a glass in winter time (June/July/August) when it’s cold, wet and dark.  I heat it up in a saucepan, careful not to bring it to boil, add some almonds & sultanas and serve in small cups or glasses.

I couldn’t resist to buy this bottle of Smirnoff GOLD – Cinnamon Flavoured Liqueur.  It just looks so pretty with Gold flakes floating around in the bottle.  Perfect for New Years Eve – to add a little BLING to the glasses!
