What to eat and drink while watching the All Blacks

Well the All Black vs France - 3rd Test is on in 20 minutes.
The food is almost ready to go.

recipe1.Mulled Wine - it is so cold outside. This is made with a bottle of very cheap Merlot, 1/2 cup brown sugar, two star anise, 1 cinnamon stick and the juice and rind of a lime. It is warm and yummy

2. Greek chicken skewers - strips of chicken breast, zest of a lime, 3 cloves garlic crushed, 1/2 cup thick natural yogurt and some chopped mint. Mix all together and let marinate for 1/2 hour. Put onto skewers and fry quickly in the pan.
