TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Perfect for the last minute get-together or holiday drop-in, Mrs. Beachley's Mulled Wine (LCBO #295386, 750 mL for $13.95) is the perfect winter warmer. It's a sweet blend of red wine, orange, clove and cinnamon. Using the age-old recipe from the iconic Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, this fragrant mulled wine is delicious warm or at room temperature. For extra flavour, try topping it up with a dash of brandy.
The New World Wine category at LCBO sees consistent buying trends year round, making it less seasonal than other categories. During the season, New World customers look to long-time favourites like red blends from California or Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand for gifting. Large-format products from these regions are ideal for entertaining. Check availability online using the product search function on www.LCBO.com
"This is an easy way to impress your guests and make them think you've been standing over the stove all afternoon," said Greg Tranah, Category Manager for New World Wines. "We bought this product in limited quantity – especially for holiday – so when it's gone, it's gone."
LCBO wants you to enjoy the holiday season safely. Responsible and generous hosts always have a variety of drinks to offer guests, including "0% Cocktails" on hand. For complementary food and alcohol-free cocktail recipes, visit www.deflatetheelephant.com.
