It's a holiday staple. I use Jameson Irish Whiskey, my favorite. I think the flavor, and certainly the alcohol, loses its kick the more it's kept warm. I will usually add more at the end. I think one of the kids made it with the brandy once, but I was getting so cranky/flustered with all our 20-somethings in the kitchen that I threw more straight Jameson into my mug. I believe they call that 'self-medicating'. Enjoy! Read More

Was very tasty but I put the cloves and ginger in a cheesecloth bag and that seemed to help keep it "neat" looking. Read More

This was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I followed the recipe exactly using a very nice and smooth Argentinian merlot. The only difference was that I didn't have any brandy so I used what I had on hand which was Remy Martin. Not an economical way to go but it was amazing! I also like the idea of trying it with Jameson's. Anyway I will make this again. It's wonderful on these very cold nights in front of the fireplace. Read More

Did mine on the stovetop and goosed the brandy up to probably 1/2 c (had a bit left in the bottle so I just dumped it in). Perfection on a chilly December night. I'm making this for Xmas eve! Read More

Loved it! Perfect on a cold winter night. I didn t have any fresh ginger on hand so I threw in about 1T of crystallized ginger chips. Put slow cooker on high to get it hot quickly. Garnished as pictured. I may make it again tonight! Read More
