Glühwein is enjoyed at traditional Christmas Markets and is also known as an after-ski drink. Watch it: since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick!

Here’s How:

  1. Place 1/2 cup water in a large saucepan with a piece of cinnamon, ginger, orange zest, 8 cloves, and 3/8 cup sugar.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer to a thick syrup.
  3. Pour in 3 cups red wine.
  4. Heat to just below the boiling point.
  5. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break.)
