Mulling Around This Christmas

Mulling around this Christmas, with firmus energy, natural gas. 

Natural gas is a game-changer when it comes to having a cosy and welcoming home over the festive season, and while this year, Christmas may not be filled with as many social occasions as we would like, there’s no reason why our homes shouldn’t form the cosy backdrop we need this Christmas.

Our customers frequently report that they love cooking up a storm on their natural gas hobs so with plummeting temperatures and cosy nights in it was no surprise to hear that many have been getting creative making delicious homemade mulled drinks that warm the soul and soothe the stresses of Christmas shopping!

Whether it’s a casual night in for two or your entertaining friends and family indoors or out, a comforting glass of spiced mulled wine will ensure that Christmas arrives with smiles all round.

Christmas in a glass

Ingredients (serves 4)

· 750ml bottle red wine

· 1 large cinnamon stick

· Handful of bay leaves

· 1 vanilla pod

· 2 star anise

· 4 cloves

· 2 strips lemon zest, pared using a vegetable peeler
