Treat the children to their own mulled 'wine' this winter- Cherished By Me

Do you find in the winter that you don’t drink as much water? It’s sometimes hard to fancy anything other than tea or Mulled Apple & Blackcurrant with Robinsons real fruit squash- Cherished By Mecoffee, or even hot chocolate when the weather is a bit grim isn’t it. Have you ever thought of warming up some squash though instead? When I was growing up my mum used to always make us hot lemon with Robinsons lemon squash, I have to admit I wasn’t the biggest fan but there are so many different flavours to choose from nowadays that there is definitely something to please everyone.

There are a whopping eleven flavours in the Robinsons range, quite a few more than when I was a child…

Lemon, Orange, Apple & Blackcurrant, Summer Fruits, Orange & Mango, Orange & Pineapple, Lemon & Mango, Orange & Raspberry, Pinapple, Mango & Passion Fruit and Apple Blackcurrant & Cherry!
