mulled wine

So this wine is absolutely delicious. It’s sweet with just a bit of tartness; any mori girl who likes wine needs to try this. It was also $3.50 when I bought it. It was on sale and I can’t remember the original price but it wasn’t very expensive to begin with!

I’m looking forward to mulling this wine; I think cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, orange and vanilla will really compliment it!


It’s Christmas…

…well almost. Today is December so in my eyes the countdown to Christmas has now begun. My tree doesn’t go up until Dec 4th as it’s my birthday on the 3rd (gotta let me have my own time to shine without Christmas intruding on my special day!).

But to get into the festive spirit I’ve made this repeat pattern which I will using as my iPhone5 wallpaper and as my desktop background for the whole of Christmas to spread the Yule tide joy.

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey - Mulled Wine

External image

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is a game I’ve only briefly encountered. A few years ago I began playing it during my annual winter desire for point and click adventures, but believe I abandoned it to play Dracula: Origins. I hear wonderful things though, and this recipe for Mulled Wine has definitely encouraged me to finally play it. 

Apparently, Mulled Wine is a speciality of Benrime’s at the Journeyman Inn, and is traditionally served at the Arcadian celebration of the Winter Solstice with roast gipa.
