To make the mulled wine syrup, reduce 500ml of mulled wine in a small pan down to 200ml. Be sure to do this on a gentle simmer so the sugars in the mulled wine do not caramelise and burn

If necessary, strain out the spices and allow to cool before using. This can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 month
