Happy Christmas. Make some Giggle Loop Mulled Wine

Happy Christmas everyone. To celebrate the occasion, why not have some mulled wine? Giggle Loop-style!


  • Caster sugar
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • An orange
  • Neurofen cold and flu
  • Cloves
  • Wine
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Pancetta
  • Terry’s Chocolate Orange
  • Masala
  • Dark rum
  • Orange juice (from concentrate)


  • First, cut the orange. Then juice it.
  • Measure out a spoonful of ground ginger. Feed it to a nearby friend.
  • Pour a bottle of red wine in to a saucepan and warm it in on the hob at a medium-high heat. Add a glug of Masala to the wine. It’s a sticky fermented fig stuff that will sweeten it right up!
  • Add the squeezed orange juice too.
  • Separately, mix  1tsp of ground ginger, 1 “baby’s nose” of Ground Cinnamon, 1 tsp of mixed spice, 1tsp of cloves, and “a bunch” of sugar (probably three teaspoons).
  • Chop the Brussels Sprouts and put to one side for garnish
  • Slice the rind from your juiced orange and add to the wine
  • Add some orange juice for good measure.
  • Taste the wine. Don’t worry, it won’t taste great, but it will get better.
  • Add the spices. All of them.
  • Let it simmer for 10 mins or so. Add more orange juice if you feel like it. Swap clothes with your friends and see if anyone notices the difference.
  • Add dark rum for the finishing touch.
  • Ladle the rind in to a sieve, then pour the wine through the sieve in to a jug.
  • Serve the wine in to a nearby mug. Spill the wine on the floor. Consider using a ladle to serve.
  • Taste the wine.
  • Throw away the Brussels Sprouts, put the pancetta back in the fridge and eat the Terry’s Chocolate orange if you feel inclined.
  • Then subscribe to the Giggle Loop Podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud.
  • Subscribe to the Giggle Loop YouTube Channel.
  • Enjoy your mulled wine
  • Take a pair of Neurofen if it gives you a headache.

Happy Christmas!
