German Mulled or Spiced Wine
Gluhwien or hot spiced wine has such good memories of warming up a cold winter night. Glühwein stands are very common throughout the Kristkindle markets in Germany.
1 750 ml bottle of dry inexpensive red wine, such as cabernet or merlot
1 cup water
1 / 2 cup Rum or to your liking.
also may use brandy, or vodka
2 Cinnamon Sticks (break into 3 or 4 pieces)
10 whole cloves
Some cheese cloth
2 Star Anise
2 Cardomom Pods
4 slices Fresh ginger or a few pieces of candied ginger
2. With a carrot peeler peel half of the lemon and half of the orange.
If you can find some cheese cloth put the peel and the spices
in the cheese cloth and tie up. Put this in the wine.
This will make it less cloudy and you don't have to strain it.
3. Juice the lemon and orange, strain and add to the wine. Add the water.
4. Add a bit of the rum and taste. Add the rest if you like the flavor.
