Christmas Time - Cinnamon and Wine

Last week while we were wrestling with the Christmas tree and trying to prettify the house with fairy lights, I stupidly (as I joke I hasten to add), started prancing around with Ruby singing Cliff Richard's Mistletoe and Wine.

For the life of me I don't know why - I loathe that song, but for the past week it has been stuck on a tortuous loop in my head, occasionally escaping from my lips as the old man looks despairingly at me wondering what medication I'm on.

Anyhow, all this singing about mistletoe and wine, with logs on the fire etc etc reminded me of @beckicklesie's Oui Chef theme for December - cinnamon and wine. Tenuous link I know, but that's how my mind works.




So here's my entry. A lovely simple recipe, perfect for unwinding after a hard day's shopping / cleaning / tweeting / whatever.

Ingredients:

1 cinnamon stick
1 large glass of red wine (my preference would be Merlot, but whatever takes your fancy)

Method:

Well, it's fairly self explanatory I think.....

Serving suggestion - Slanket optional!

Cheers!
