Warm and cozy

Who says mulled wine isn't a thing on our sunny little island? The warm alternative to the fruity, alcoholic drink is a cozy option for intimate nights in — something we'll be seeing a lot more of this festive season. It's a definite plus when you're decked out at home in a Christmas sweater with your partner, alongside a holiday flick for the fuzzy feels. And whether you're in the mood for some sweeter drinks, or simply looking to clear some old bottles of wine, whipping up some spiked wine might also prove to be a great #stayhome allure for you and your loved ones. Below, a few of our favourite drinking holes — MO Bar and Barbary Coast — treat us to an early Christmas gift with their very own mulled wine recipes.
