The Detail

If Christmas was a smell, it would be that of mulled wine. Decorating the tree with a glass of spiced wine is a time honoured tradition in many of our homes and one we always take part in at the restaurant when we get our decorations out. This cocktail takes the familiar aromas and flavours of smoked star anise, maple syrup and orange and adds a grown up edge with the addition of Bourbon and the use of a quality Barolo wine.
