Mulled Wine (Gluhwein) Recipe

MULLED WINE IS wine cooked with spices, oranges and some sugar. It could be considered a winter version of home made sangria. Mulled wine is very easy and simple to make, so I think everyone should be trying to make their own this winter instead of buying pre-packed from the supermarket – because it tastes better home-made and because it is healthier that way (without artificial flavors, spice extracts, and possible conservatives).

Ingredients
– Red wine of your choice, 1 liter, preferably organic
– Orange, 1. One half peeled and cut in cubes, another half unpeeled and cut in slices.
– Gluhwein spices (for example, from Dille & Kamille), 2 tablespoons
– Sugar, 2 tablespoons

Recipe
POUR RED WINE IN A PAN and warm it up, without bringing it to a boil. When warm, add the cubes of orange, the sugar and the spices. Stir a little and then leave on very low heat for a few minutes. Have a taste, take off heat when you are satisfied with the flavor (when the spices have had enough time to infuse into the wine). Pass the wine through a sieve to catch all the spices and orange cubes. Serve the mulled wine in heat-proof glasses with a slice of orange on the side. Enjoy!
