I mentioned in my previous post, living on the other side of the world brings with it Christmas differences. Instead of seafood & Summer, its snowflakes and snuggles. All the Christmas songs now make sense and i now find myself dreaming of a white Christmas...
There are traditions and parties galore, and endless trips to the mall! But by now the work should be done, so pull out your favourite mug and fill it with one of our favourite drinks! (I am crushing on these copper mugs!)
And don't forget, if you're on the flip side of the sun, you can always have each of these on ice as you laze by the pool...
1 bottle of inexpensive red or white wine
1 litre of apple juice
2 tablespoons of mulling spices
Pour the liquids into a large pot, add the mulling spices secured in a teabag or tea strainer.
Put on low heat for 20mins. Make sure it does not boil. Take out spices after 30mins or to taste.
Pour and enjoy!
Make coffee to personal liking, add Baileys & cheers!
Also enjoyed with a few pieces of Peppermint Bark aka Christmas Crack ...
CANDY CANE HOT CHOCOLATE
Create hot chocolate to taste, add mountains of mini marshmallows and a peppermint flavoured candy cane spoon! And M&M's for a little extra sugar rush ...
Cheers to Christmas Eve!
