Christmas is the most magical time of year, twinkling lights, busy shoppers, choirs on the radio & flickering candles. Cosy nights in the front of the fire, the smell of mulled wine & the annual drunken office party. The credit card is given a right pounding, not to mention your poor feet...
The Humble Spud (right)
Christmas does not mean you cannot add a little spicy heat to the proceedings. Sprinkle a little dry rub on your roasties while cooking for colour and subtle flavour. These are our Cajun Pots, but Pitmaster, Brazilian and South Carolina work just as well on roasties, as well as wedges and chips.
Let Smokey take the hassle out of Christmas. Have a look at our great range of gifts, available right here online.

...But Christmas should not need to be stressful; plan ahead, start early, make a list, set a budget and don’t over do it.

You will need;
- 1 bottle of red wine (preferably dry)
- 75ml of Mulled Syrup
- 250ml of orange juice
- 1 orange
- extra tipple (optional)
What is Christmas without the scent of mulled spices in the air. Mulled wine is just not for the the busy Christmas markets, you can make it at home, its so easy, with our super quick syrup method. Smokey's mulled syrup is ready to add to either wine, cider or fruit juice to make a quick & tasty festive drink.
Add the bottle of wine to a saucepan, stir in the orange juice, and Mulled Syrup*. Cut the orange into flat slices and add to the pan. Heat gently, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let it boil. After the wine has come up to temperature, it’s ready to serve. Pour into cups and enjoy. If there is any left over, reheat as required.
Adults only: For an extra kick, why not add a little shot of your favourite tipple? We find that Amaretto, dark rum, brandy or even Cointreau work very well!
For mulled cider use the same method as above but replace the wine with cider, the orange juice with apple juice and use sliced fresh apple instead of orange. We find a still strong cider such as Westons Old Rosie works best.
The scent of Christmas is in the air...!
If you love mulled wine, why not give mulled cider a go?
*As well as our pre-made syrup, Smokey also has 'Make Your Own Kits', with the loose spice in a muslin bag. If using the bag method (1 x 30g), follow the same instructions as above but infuse for longer and add sugar to taste.
