Mulled wine

Mulled wine

Q. We're having a winter wedding, and we want our drinks menu to reflect this. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Gillian Bartlett says: - A gin cocktail or mulled version is perfect for the festive season. Such drinks are ideal for your reception or for keeping your guests warm before the ceremony.

- Alternatively, wine or prosecco is guaranteed to add some sparkle to your big day.

- Why not pair your favourite gin with something other than tonic? A spiced gin works brilliantly with a ginger ale. Add a chopped red chilli and fresh ginger to create a customised drink.
