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 :)

How to Make German Holiday Drink, "Gluhwein"

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