winter warmer: Best Gluhwein Recipe

July 3, 2014, by Lisa Saville

Jurgens fiance can’t be wrong – keep warm this winter with Hannelise’s killer recipe:



3/4 cup water
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange
10 whole cloves
1 (decent) bottle red wine

In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice of both halves into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses might crack)…
