Everyone knows that, like Christmas trees and Michael Bublé, mulled wine is a winter necessity.
However, this year, 'tis the season for mulling every other alcoholic beverage as well – so forgive me father for I am about to gin. Yep, Asda has upped the ante for December 2017, adding mulled gin to its festive offerings – and suddenly, we're all merry.
The wonderfully warm and cosy Christmas drink will now be available as part of a Mulled Gin Spice Kit on sale at the supermarket.
An Asda spokesman told Digital Spy that it's "a twist on traditional mulled wine", adding:
"This fragranced kit of dried fruit, cinnamon, rose petals, juniper, ginger and star anise looks beautiful in a glass.
"It makes a delicious and warming non-alcoholic drink blended with fruit juice or festive tipple, mixed with your choice of gin."
Does this mean we're allowed to start playing Christmas songs now?
