Mulled white wine

Fed up with the usual mulled wine? Try this twist on a classic using white wine and cider.


  • Two bottles of medium-dry white wine
  • 500ml light cider
  • 150ml elderflower cordial
  • Zest of two lemons
  • Two cinnamon sticks
  • One 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!

I have grown up by the water and can’t imagine not living near the sea. A bbq on the beach looking out across The Solent is a great way to end a day.
