Mulled wine recipe – Gluhwine or “Glühwein” in German is a traditional hot drink during the winter months.  Fall and winter is the time for warm and hot beverages. In Germany the most famous warm beverage recipe is a hot spiced (or mulled) wine named “Gluehwein”. In Scandinavia they call it Gloegg but it is served without alcohol. Glühwein tastes the best when drinking it outside, and when the temperature is low, actually when it is freezing cold. You can find the Glühwein on every German Christmas market and in every super market. On the markets they sell it steaming hot at their booths.
Glühwein smells good and tastes good. It is a wonderful drink for these cold winter days. Happy Cooking!
