With Cape Town’s wet & cold winter in full swing my craving for Glühwein is intensified 🙂
Here is a recipe to make the German classic drink
Ingredients (serves 2-3 persons)
- 1 bottle of dry red wine (750 ml)
- one lemon
- 2 sticks of cinnamon
- 3 cloves
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- some cardamom (or ginger)
Heat the red wine in a pot (don’t boil).
Cut the lemon into slices and add to the wine.
Then add the cinnamon, cloves, sugar and a little cardamom (to taste).
Heat everything for about 5 minutes – do not boil – and let stand for about an hour.
Before serving, reheat and strain. Serve in pre-warmed glasses or mugs.
I found this recipe on About.com
My sister does her Glühwein with brown sugar, cinnamon and mixed spice.
Take a cup fill with some wine, add a dash of sugar, ginger, cinnamon, lemon juice and whatever else you feel like. And heat in microwave… 🙂 quick and easy….
Sit back and enjoy !!!! 🙂
