Blood orange mulled wine

Laura | Lau Sunday cooks

It's that time of the year guys, there are several signs to know it's Christmas time, (yep, in November!) but for me, the most relevant are:

John Lewis launching its Christmas advert.
Everything you see around you has sequins and glitter on.
The Coca-Cola truck is already announcing its tour. 
Your neighbours have a Christmas wreath in their front door. (I saw it before Halloween, I swear.)
You're driving and all of a sudden Mariah Carey plays All I want for Christmas is you. (hum, okay, maybe not yet).
It's freezing cold but nobody complain. Actually people'd love to snow, including myself, even knowing that it causes a huge disruptions (both in England and Spain are not prepared for snow)
You walk in to a pub and smell a fragrant that reminds you to Christmas. (Sigh) it's mulled wine. Such a lovely time of the year isn't it?!

Mulled wine was a new-to-me drink last year when I discovered it in the cosiest pub with an open place I could dream of.

I quickly felt in love with this warm sweet wine and I wondered why I hadn't tried it before. For some reason, I never came across this seasonal drink in Barcelona or I just didn't pay attention to it.

I asked how it was made and promised myself I would make it some day. 

And that day was last Sunday. It was totally worth waking up at 7:30am to shoot this mulled wine. It was really cold outside but the light coming in through the windows was gorgeous. I really enjoyed playing around with the lighting and then I finished drinking two glasses and went back to bed. 

Happy drinking!
