The Oxford Bishop: 19th Century Spiced Mulled Port Wine
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
6 servings
A lovely Traditional old English recipe by Eliza Acton, a 19th Century Victorian cookery writer of great repute. This unique beverage is also mentioned in "The Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, although in the book it was called Smoking Bishop!! This is a fruity & spiced warm mulled Port Wine drink which brings a glow to your face & warmth to your aching joints, believe me! Just the festive beverage to have after returning from Christmas Midnight Mass or whilst listening to Carols from King's College on Christmas Eve. Also wonderful as a welcome drink for a party or special event. It is easily topped up if extra guests arrive, and I have used wine in the past when the port was finished!
