Glühwein is a hot spiced mulled red wine and part of the Christmas market like the gifts under the Christmas tree
Today I am showing you how to make a really good mulled wine yourself
Glühwein can be made from Red Wine, and I just found out also with White Wine. The wine is usually flavored with Christmas spices like cinnamon, cloves, anis and orange or lemon slices sweetened with sugar. The quality of the Glühwein depends primarily with the quality of the wine used, therefore I’d recommend Merlot Red Wine
The quality of the hot spiced wine at the Christmas market is usually not very good, I only drink it because I want to warm up when it’s cold
Don’t have the Glühwein Mulling spices at hand, you can order them here on Amazon
Tea Infusers can be bought here on Amazon
