Print this Recipe    Gluehwein 03

Yield: 4 servings

60 g sugar
1/2 cinnamon stick
4 cloves
peel of 1/2 lemon
1/8 liter water
1 liter red wine
juice of 1/2 - 1 lemon

Put cinnamon, cloves and lemon peel in a paper tea filter; tie it
shut with a piece of white yarn. Together with the water and the
sugar, bring it to a boil in a pot, let sit for 20 minutes. Take
out the tea filter, add the red wine and heat. The art is to heat
the wine up as close to its boiling temperature without ever getting
it to boil (the most important thing about making gluehwein is that
the wine must NEVER boil). Finally, add lemon juice to taste.

Possible variations: ~ leave away the lemon juice or use orange
juice instead ~ leave away the lemon peel ~ instead of boiling the
tea filter, put it directly into the wine, heat, and let soak for
30 - 45 minutes (you don't need the water this way); if you chop
up the ingredients before putting them in the filter, you get a
more intensive flavor ~ add a few drops of vanilla ~ add a little
cardamom and/or ginger ~ vary the quantities of cinnamon, cloves
and sugar ~ to get the possibly most famous type of gluehwein, the
Nuernberger Christkindlesmarkt-Gluehwein, use blueberry wine instead
of red wine
