German Christmas recipesGlühwein

Though Glühwein sets the mood at German Christmas markets, you don't have to brave the elements to enjoy it. Hot mulled wine can easily be made right at home. It's the perfect antidote for those cold winter days. It warms the body and the spirit and sets the perfect holiday mood.


     1 bottle red wine
1 small lemon
16 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
4 to 6 Tbsp. sugar
nutmeg (optional)


Pour the wine into a saucepan. Peel the rind from the lemon in one continuous strip. Add the lemon rind, cloves, cinnamon, and sugar to the pan. Heat over low heat until hot but not boiling. Strain and pour into tea cups. Top each glass with a pinch of nutmeg for an extra spicy punch. Serves 6.
