Gold & Frankincense White Mulled Wine

Believe it or not, I am not a red wine drinker. You see, for me, unless it’s a specifically hot drink, they need to be super cold. I like my drinks fresh and crisp.


So, in the summer, Sangria takes on a paler guise and, in the Winter, mulled wine gets the same treatment, only this time it comes in its finest adornment, fit for a King some might say.


This one is for special occasions, to be sipped and allow the melody of exquisite essence wash over you.

Ingredients:


750ml Crémant, preferably Alsace

200ml White Port

200ml White Grape Juice

10ml Ginger Cordial

1 tsp Oolong Tea leaves

5 Drops Frankincense

Gold Flakes to serve


Method:


1. Add the port and the grape juice to a jug and add the tea leaves. Allow to infuse for 1 hour (you do not need to warm this; you are looking for a gentle aroma).

2. Strain out the tea and add the ginger cordial and Frankincense.

3. Divide the mixture between 6 Glasses and add a few edible gold flakes to each. Top up with Crémant and serve immediately.
