Christmas drink: Alternative to mulled wine: mulled gin is the trend drink in winter 2023

At some point, usually between the sixth and eighth cup of the fifth Christmas market visit with colleagues, even the biggest mulled wine fan looks into the tankard with empty eyes and has finished the sweet Christmas drink. Alternatives are needed. Mulled gin is ideal for gin lovers. Essentially, it only differs from mulled wine in one point: instead of wine, cloves, star anise, cinnamon and organs are used to refine the wine

Bad cat? Rather less. This mulled gin has just 17 percent alcohol by volume. Pleasure drinkers should wake up without a pounding head. If the gin is too strong for you, you can also mix it with fruit juice. The manufacturer recommends a mixture in the ratio of two thirds mulled wine and one third juice. Apple juice is a good choice.

The gin connoisseur usually knows everything about gin and likes to refine his with unpronounceable tonic water that can only be bought on the Internet (or in a very specific supermarket in Thailand). With his eyes wide open, he looks hopefully at the other guests as they sip his spiced gin and tonic creations. Of course, he doesn't skimp on the question of how it tastes and satisfaction appears on his face when it actually does that to the uninformed.

Ginsanity is what they call it. If all this is too complicated for you, simply grab a bottle of mulled gin from the manufacturer of the same name. But you don't want to drink it neat. Because of its 40 percent volume, two shots of apple juice should refine it.

Preparing this “essence” of mulled gin is even easier. According to the manufacturer, you simply have to mix the gin with water in a 1:1 ratio and heat it, and the mulled gin is ready. In addition to gin and apple juice, the mixture also contains cinnamon and ginger. Bottom up.
