I want to share my recipe for Glühwein - a traditional European mulled wine, your best friend on chilly winter nights. It's very hearty and warming and it go straight to your head! The best drink after a ski trip or after you were on the road for 4 hours and can't feel your legs.
There are many recipes for Glühwein. My recipe is not the most traditional, but I believe it's the best. For each person you need:
- 1 cup of dry red wine. Choose fool bodied, inexpensive wine from the South, like Australian Shiraz.
- 2 generous table spoon of sugar
- 1 mandarin (or a half of orange)
- 1 whole clove
- pinch of cinnamon (you can use 1 whole cinnamon stick for approximately 6 cups)
- pinch of nutmeg
Serve in thick eggnog glasses, garnish with a cinnamon stick or an orange peel. Enjoy responsively. Do not operate heavy machinery (such as snow throwers) afterwards.
