Mulled White Wine

Tired of your usual mulled wine tipple? Try this twist on a classic using white wine and cider for a lighter warming treat during the festive season.


  • 2 bottles White Wine (Medium-Dry)
  • 500 ml Light Cider
  • 150 ml Elderflower Cordial
  • Zest of two Lemons
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 4-5 tbsp Caster Sugar


  • Place all the ingredients into a pan and heat until steaming (not boiling). 
  • Ladle into mugs whilst keeping the rest on a warming heat. Enjoy!
