Try this version of Gluhwein – a German-style hot spiced wine! A perfect beverage to enjoy on a cold winter night, when you feel under the weather or anytime you feel like cozying up!
• about 3 cups red wine (dry only, or combination of dry and dessert)
• 3-4 cloves
• 3-4 cardamom seeds
• 1-2 all spice berries
• 1/2 stick cinnamon
• 2 pinches freshly graded nutmeg
• zest of 1 lemon
• juice of 1/2 lemon
• 1 Tablespoon (or more, if you like sweeter things) honey
In a sauce pot over low-medium heat, combine wine, spices, lemon juice and zest, and honey. Gently heat through, but do not allow to boil. Sieve through into serving cups and enjoy! Garnish with a slice of lemon if desired.
