It wouldn’t be Christmas without our favourite drink, BURST Mulled Wine.

Caffeine free, enriched with 27 vitamins & minerals and just 15 calories per serving, this BURST flavour is going to be your BFF this Christmas! Whether you enjoy it cold for a refreshing boost or keep things classic and have it hot, there’s nothing better than a low calorie mulled wine.  

How do I make my shakes hot?
