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.

Ahahaha, this cracked me up! Being less of a rebel than Jo, I just followed the recipe, and would say it's not particularly dry if you don't swap the elderflower syrup for gin. Although Jo probably had a much more lively night than I did after her concoction...
