This is a recipe I got from my German friend, Julie. It's very nice to sip on a cold evening...this will warm you right up! Pronounced "gloo-vine", though my boyfriend and I started jokingly calling it "Glooberwine" last year and it stuck :)

However many people can drink a 1.5 liter bottle of wine!

Ingredients

1 1/2 l
bottle of red wine (i use merlot)
4 to 5
cinnamon sticks
10
whole cloves
1
tangerine or mandarin orange (zest and juice)
1
lemon (zest)
1 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and heat slowly over low heat until steaming hot. *BUT DON'T LET IT COME TO A BOIL, OR THE ALCOHOL WILL COOK OUT, AND THAT'S NO FUN!*
2
Continue to heat slowly so the flavors can mingle and infuse the wine.
3
When ready to drink, strain the heated wine into a large pitcher, pour into coffee mugs.

If you don't have a zester, you can put slices of the lemon and orange in the mix instead.
