Glühwein with a Twist

When I was in Austria recently visiting Sammy, one of our favourite things to do was go to the Christmas Markets and get a hot mug (or a few!!) of Glühwein … AKA Mulled Wine!! So, when I came back home from my trip I definitely had a hankerin’ for some good ‘ol Glühwein, so much so that I decided to whip my own up … I like to call it Glühwein with a Twist!!

Get your pen and paper out, because you’re going to want to head to the store and grab these ingredients and make yourself a cozy batch of this for the weekend!!

Ps. I’m planning on sharing all of the details of my trip to Austria with you next week … in the meantime, head on over to Sammy’s blog for her recap … maybe read it over a mug of Glühwein?? LOL!!

Glühwein with a Twist

Makes approx 4 mugs!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 10 cloves
  • 10 peppercorns (or you can use Star Ani
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 large grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • A bottle of red wine
  • 1/2 cup of spiced rum
  • Sugar for the rim of your mugs

Directions

  1. Cut your orange and grapefruit in half.
  2. Juice one half of each, your orange and your grapefruit.
  3. Insert the cloves into the other un-juiced half of your orange. Set aside.
  4. Peels your lemon into long twists.
  5. Add the sugar to the water and bring to a boil on the stove.
  6. Add the half an orange, with the cloves inserted in the peel into the pot.
  7. Add the peppercorns (or star anise), cinnamon sticks, orange juice and grapefruit juice, and lemon twists to the pot and allow to boil for a few minutes.
  8. Reduce the heat and pour in a bottle of wine and 1/2 cup of spiced rum to the pot. Make SURE this doesn’t come to a boil because then your alcohol will burn off!!
  9. Allow this mixture to gently simmer for a couple of minutes so the flavours have a chance to combine.
  10. Remove from heat, strain into a clean pot.
  11. Sugar the rim of your mugs.
  12. Divide the warm Glühwein with a Twist up between your mugs.
  13. Serve with a cinnamon stick or a slice of orange and enjoy!

    On some blogs, they have a printer friendly version of the recipe. Makes it super easy to print off! Just a thought.

    You should try Epicure’s Mulling Spices. Made in Canada. Extra great for a winter night.

    My husband and I lived in Germany for four years. Drinking Gluhwein while walking through the Christmas Markets was definitely a favorite pastime of ours. To this day, every Winter we make a big pot of Gluhwein, stay in PJs and snuggle on the couch! Can’t wait to try your recipe and see how it compares to ours!!

    I’m so excited to try this recipe. You’ve inspired me to make mini batches for my son’s teachers. I bought cute copper Moscow mule cups and I’ll put all the dry ingredients in the gifts along with some vino tinto! Thanks for the inspiration. Looking forward to your contest announcement for all the luckies who entered. Fingers crossed. Good luck to everyone and thanks so much for these amazing giveaways!
