Matt Tebbutt calls on Mrs Beeton for her mulled ale recipe, made with cloves, nutmeg and an extra kick from rum or brandy
Method1. Heat the ale in a large saucepan with the sugar and cloves. Don't allow it to boil.
2. Warm a jug by rinsing it out with boiling water, then pour the hot ale into the jug, adding the rum or brandy and grated nutmeg to taste.
