Last week, I blogged (here) about being a Vimto Virgin no more ! Well, the makers of Vimto, the delicious fruity soft drink with the top-secret recipe, have launched a limited edition Christmas drink, Hot Mulled Berry Punch, so we've been trying that out too.
Vimto explain : "Vimto’s much-loved original flavor has been blended with an enticing concoction of aromatic cloves, warming cinnamon and sweet nutmeg to pack a seasonal punch. Just add hot water for a warming non-alcoholic drink or use as a mixer to create a hot winter cocktail."
It's a rich fruity drink with a strong undercurrent of festive spices that reminded me very much of mulled wine or some of the spiced fruit teas you can buy. The kids weren't keen on the spicy undertones, but they were drinking it cold as squash, which may not be so nice. I think it makes a nice change over the Christmassy period.
If you want to give it a try, grab some quick while it's still on the shelves. It's available exclusively at Tesco stores across the UK from 21st November until the end of the Christmas period.
