non-alcoholic mulled wine recipes please

Oh look, it's broadly a place to talk about special occasions, party tips and to swap present ideas but let's be perfectly honest, this forum is here because I want to get excited about CHRIIIIIISTMAS from about June onwards.

Buy mulled wine sachets from supermarket and add to apple juice, warm it in saucepan. Yum!!

I use 1 sachet to 1 litre apple juice (and usually add some water, cup or two).

Er, the really easy way? Heat up some of the Copella Winter Warmer stuff: http://www.copellafruitjuices.co.uk/our-juices/juices

The other easy way - buy mulled wine flavour instant tea drink from Whittards. Add hot water - hey presto!

Having said that, I did mull red grape juice last year and it was good - but took on the consistency of tar after a few hours....

The trick with mulling grape juice is less time,really only simmer and add less sugar. Take of heat after about 20mins. Re heat in microwave (or with clean hot poker if you're being traditional) when needed.

i would mix 50/50 grape juice and cranberry juice, the cranberry adds the tartness that is missing in grape juice (compared to wine), then add required amount of sachets and any sugar to taste if required. we served this up at our wedding as the on-alcoholic version, and it went down a treat!

So..if you don't have the sachets...do you just chuck in a stick of cinnamon and a star anise? or maybe a couple of cloves?
Now I want some ... :)
