Traditional German Glühwein Recipe- German Mulled Wine For a Cold Evening
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.)
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.
