    About this recipe: Gluhwein is a German/Austrian cold season drink that most tourists know as an after-ski drink. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. Watch it: since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick! Drink when you really have come in, and do not have to go out again! This is the one my father used to make for New Year's Eve.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3/4 cup (180ml) water
    • 3/4 cup castor sugar
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 orange
    • 10 whole cloves
    • 1 bottle (750ml) bottle red wine

    Directions
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
    2. Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
    3. Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break).
