mint Posted December 9, 2012 Share Posted December 9, 2012 to find the definitive way to make this warming delicacy.Some years ago, Mrs Another (who was then Mrs Bluecat) gave me a recipe which was very good. But, yesterday, I found some packets with all the spices in Lidl and I thought I'd take a short cut and just use some of the mélange.I have decided that the least messy way is to put the spices in a muslin parcel and dangle that on the edge of the saucepan. So....muslin found, little "bouquet" made and I'm about to experiment.Just a few questions (as you'd expect from this less than clueless individual): how do you know if the wine is hot enough (I presume you don't actually boil the mixture)do you add fruit such as oranges, lemons or clementinesdo you add some spirit such as brandy to make the mixture even more potentwhat hangover cure can you suggest should the vin chaud be so delicious that we overindulgePlease understand that this is only a dummy run BEFORE I make it for friends and neighbours. I quite like my friends and neighbours and I wouldn't want to put them off coming to our house forever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
