After posting yesterday’s recipe for a Strawberry Daiquiri I felt a twinge of guilt for our family and friends still freezing in the Northern hemisphere so here is a good old fashioned recipe for Glühwein.  I think some people also call this mulled wine.  Either way, it’s guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart.


1 bottle good dry red wine
125g sugar
3-4 cloves
1-2 cinnamon sticks
Lemon peel for garnishing


  1. Heat but do not boil all the ingredients, except for the lemon peel in a saucepan.
  2. Pour into elegant glasses and garnish with the lemon peel.

  1. We have this so often in winter, mind you with all this rain and cold it may just be a plan for this evening. OH wait … I forgot my NY’s resolution to not have wine on weekdays … drat!

  2. Ha – even in Dallas, the temperature is dropping well below the level of comfort; this will definitely help warm up the soul, at the very least …

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
