THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 4, 2018 CHRISTMAS IN THE VALLEY 2018 31 German Glühwein There are many variations on this drink, but the basics are usually hot red wine mixed with spices and fruits, probably citrus. There's even a version called feuer- zangtasse, or fire cup, featuring a flaming cone of sugar on top. You can make your own mulling spices or look for ready-made packets and mixes in your local grocery or liquor store near the wine. Serve your mulled wine in cups or mugs rather than your stemware. Glühwein ¾ cup water ¾ cup sugar 1 cinnamon stick 10 cloves ½ cup orange juice 1 orange, sliced into thin rounds 1 750mL bottle of red wine 1. Mix the water, sugar, spices and juice together in a saucepan. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes or until syrupy. 2. Add the wine and cook until warmed through. Serve in warm mugs with rounds of orange. Note: This is a basic recipe. Feel free to adjust to your tastes by less- ening or adding sugar, adding other spices (ginger, star anise), other flavors (vanilla), or fruits (lemon, apples). – © 2018 Green Shoot Media Germans often toast the holiday with a traditional cup of mulled wine, or in German, glühwein.
