How to Make German Holiday Drink, "Gluhwein"
- 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!*
- Continue to heat slowly so the flavors can mingle and infuse the wine.
- 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.
