When life gives you mulled wine…make jelly!

This is a very short, quick pre Christmas post. I was gifted a bottle of mulled wine at a blogger event at the Cooperative Group recently. I like the idea of mulled wine than I do the drink itself. Half a mug and I’ve had enough. So what to do with the rest?

I was slightly surprised by how potent this jelly was. So I would suggest serving it as small shots rather than in a large martini glass as per the photo- I needed a lie down after eating half of that!

You could go full-on mulled wine or dilute with lemonade- if doing the latter go 50/50 and taste before adding sugar. Depending on your lemonade you may not need any.

One last word on that gold leaf- I think it is such a nice touch to give your jelly a touch of class. You can buy it in Sainsbury’s now- it was just £3 for a couple of small sheets. I think I will be gold-leafing many things in the future!
