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.
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!
