Mulled Rum Recipe

Mulled Rum Recipe

Our mulled rum recipe will help you launch straight into Christmas.

The orange in this (studded with cloves) is a nod to the christingle oranges we had at school. What do you get if you cross Father Christmas with a Pirate? Mulling, to warm a drink with spices, has been making homes smell Christmassy forever. Mulled wine has been usurped by Mulled Cider in our families over the last few years. As life has got busier and the opportunity to get friends together more special, the need to hit hard into Christmas and a full on festive spirit has become more pressing. Something stronger is called for.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you,  our Mulled Rum recipe.

Warning if the serving is too large you might not be able to feel your feet.
