Its the time of year where it’s getting cold and it’s dark outside early. There is nothing nicer than snuggling up watching a film with a nice hot drink on cold nights. Vimto have just launched a new limited edition seasonal spiced punch, which is perfect for keeping you warm and cosy this winter and a brilliant non-alcoholic alternative to mulled wine.
The Vimto Hot Mulled Berry Punch is based on the original Vimto recipe but has been blended with aromatic cloves, warming cinnamon and sweet nutmeg to give it those Christmas overtones. All you need to do is add hot water to make a lovely warming drink or it could also be used as the base of a hot winter alcoholic cocktail.
I was sent some to try and made it on a rather cold day. It has a lovely berry taste and you can definitely taste the undertones of the spices which reminded me a lot of mulled wine. It is a really warming drink, perfect when you have come in from the cold and fancy something different. My son was not very keen on the spiced taste, this is definitely one for adults. I think it would be rather nice served at Christmas parties as a drink for the drivers among us.
You can get Vimto Hot Mulled Berry Punch exclusively in Tesco. It comes in 725 ml bottles. RRP £1.89
It has been available from the 21st November, but remember it is a limited edition so get it while it is there.
