While your stocking up on things to keep away the chill, here’s a great recipe to WARM YOU UP!

Glühwein (Mulled Wine)

(recipe from The Advantageous Adapter, via

3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
10-20 whole cloves
1 orange
1 lemon
1 bottle red wine (We use Red Rose)

In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer. Cut the orange and lemon in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Put the covers in a metal tea ball and place it and the citrus peels 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 the cinnimon, the tea ball and the citrus halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water. NOTE: Cold glasses will break.

Great Apres Ski which is when I always had it! Also ideal for afternoons spent cleaning the house, pairs well with Fondue, really any cold day or night! Have fun!
