The 10 Best mulled drinks

A glass of something spicy – whether it’s boozy or soft – will get you in the mood for winter. Just add a roaring fire...

1. Belvoir Winter Punch


Belvoir's Mulled Winter Punch is a delicious non-alcoholic alternative to mulled wine. It has classic Christmas flavours of nutmeg and spice in abundance.

2. Lyme Bay Mulled Scrumpy Cider


Cider lovers will enjoy this wintry take on Lyme Bay's triple-gold-star scrumpy cider. Lighter and a little less heady than mulled wine.

3. Gluhwein


Treat yourself to a steaming mug of Glühwein as the weather gets colder. This mulled German drink is traditionally served warm with iced ginger biscuits.

4. Copella Winter Warmer Apple Juice


Copella twists its classic cloudy apple juice by blending it with cloves, cinnamon, cassia, nutmeg, bay, allspice and juniper berries.

5. M&S Mulled Rum Punch


This warming Spanish red wine is blended with spices and rum. It is perfect for anyone in need of a warming little something as the cold winter nights draw in.

6. Rekorderlig Winter Cider


This cider made with vanilla- and cinnamon-infused apples is very sweet. This flexible tipple can be served over ice or gently heated and served with a slice of orange.

7. Waitrose Mulled Wine


For the traditionalists. This medium-bodied red wine follows the usual recipe, flavoured with cinnamon, cloves, orange and lemon – and quite delicious it is, too.

8. Mulled Spice Tea


Herbal, fruit, flower – it seems there is a tea for everything nowadays but t's worth giving up your usual cuppa for a mug of this mulled-spice tea.

9. Waitrose Mulled Juice


If the kids fancy a winter warmer, this subtly spiced fruit juice is a great alternative to mulled wine. This is ideal to warm up after a brisk weekend walk.

10. Crabbies Mulled Ginger Wine


For those who prefer something a little more fiery, this ginger mulled wine – made with a 200-year-old steeping method – will hit the spot.
