Delicious way to warm the cockles (and use up some bottle ends). Added diluted elderflower juice and a little more sugar than in the recipe having read Jo's comments.

Worth a try but not sure I will do this again. It's rather dry, like having blotting paper in your cheeks. It may have something to do with me swopping Elderflower cordial for Gin as I didn't have any of the former and both are vaguely flowery... Will stick to the mulled pear cider.
