Following the government’s latest COVID-19 announcement, Printworks will be scaling down from Thursday 5th November, until Wednesday 2nd December. However you can still treat yourself to delicious takeaways from Wasabi and Hard Rock Cafe via Deliveroo, Uber Eats or collection. We want to thank you for all your support during this challenging time. Rest assured that we will be ready to fully re-open, just as soon as we can. Until then, take care of yourselves and each other.
Christmas is a time for parties, cosy nights at home and relaxing with the family. It’ll be a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make some exciting festive classics that we think you’ll love!
One experience we missed from Manchester’s Christmas Markets this year is the Mulled Wine! Lucky for you, it’s really easy to make!
What you’ll need
- 1 bottle of red wine (a standard 750ml will do the trick!)
- 1 large cinnamon stick, or 2 small ones
- 2 star anise
- 4 cloves
- 2 strips lemon zest, (use a vegetable peeler)
- 4 tbsp caster sugar
- Large pan
- A good mixing spoon
5 mins preparation, 15 mins cooking, 30 mins infusing
Add your red wine, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, lemon zest and sugar to a large pan.
Let it simmer on a low heat for 10 mins, giving it a bit of a stir along the way.
Next, remove from the heat and leave to cool and infuse for about 30 mins.
It’s time to enjoy your wine! When serving, heat it up without letting it boil
Fancy making non-alcoholic “mulled wine” for the kids or yourself?
Put 1 litre cranberry juice, 1 litre apple juice and 1 litre sparkling water in the fridge to chill.
Mix the juices together with a few fresh cranberries, some apple slices or any of their favourite fruits in a large jug or serving bowl, then top up with the sparkling water.
