Hey all, it’s that time of the year where people lose their sanity and a large chunk of their wallet to the holiday of Christmas. Your trees have been assembled covered in bubbles, presents wrapped and littered around the living room but have you added that anime xmas touch?
Here are some subtle touches to give your xmas a unique anime touch without breaking the bank balance and to keep yourself busy on xmas day, or even next year:

- Place the orange zest and juice in a large saucepan with the sugar, spices and vanilla pod.
- Add just enough ribena concentrate to cover the ingredients.
- Heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil rapidly until the wine has reduced and become syrupy.
- Add the mixed berries. Gently simmer for 2 minutes, do not boil. Serve in heatproof glasses.
- Serve dressed in maid/butler uniform
