This German Gluhwein Recipe-Warms Your Toes and Your Tummy

I love to make up this Traditional German Gluhwein Recipe during the Holiday season  rather then going to Costa Coffee or Starbucks for a cup of coffee. It smells good… it tastes good…. it SCREAMS Christmas in my ear…(oh wait… that’s the Kids…) (actually, a Gluhwein for mommy might make the screaming kids just a teeny bit more tolerable)

(that was a joke.)

Serve this at a holiday gathering, or make some up for yourself and maybe even a special someone. It’s perfect for those nights by the fire, wrapping presents and enjoying the Spirit of the Holidays. It tastes like heaven, and makes the house smell yummy and Christmassy.

BTW. the amount of sugar you need to add is in inverse proportion to how good the wine it…. which means…. if you use the cheap stuff, you are going to need a lot of sugar…. Taste it.
This is not to say that you should pull out an expensive bottle of wine… mid-range is fine.

  1. I am never sure what kind of red wine to use can you help me out please? What’s your favorite? And can you reheat the leftovers?
    thank yo

    1. Use a mid-range Merlot or Pinot Noir (the expensive stuff it too good for this, and the cheap stuff won’t taste good… although my mother always uses Two buck Chuck).
      And yes, go ahead and simmer to reheat the leftovers.

  2. My husband and I were in Germany last Christmas and a street vendor was selling gluhwein…oh my gosh!! I fell in love with it! I’m going to try your recipe tonight! Thanks for posting.
