It is white with snow outside my window.
Just the perfect weather for a glass of ''Vin Chaud'' (French version of Mulled Wine),
our favourite drink for cold evenings as this!
It is, as someone rightfully said, ''painfully simple'' to prepare vin chaud.
Throw in your red wine, add an orange (cut into divinely thin slices), some cinnamon (coarsely ground), cloves (optional). I added a generous portion of clear golden mountain honey and a wedge of lime.
Let it sim, do not let it boil, it will start releasing beautifully spiced vapours that fill the kitchen space with intoxicating aroma in a little while.
Not before long, the drink takes on a beautiful colour and aroma.
Et voila! The marvellous winter nectar is ready...cheers!
