Homemade German Christmas market mulled wine (glühwein)
This winter drink is fruity, spicy, and festive. You'll love how easy it is to prepare homemade mulled wine, just like at the Christmas market. Make extra and store the leftovers in the fridge to enjoy later. Serve it with gingerbread or other holiday cookies.
Try a sip of the wine (without burning your tongue). Once you're happy with the level of spice and concentration, turn off the heat.
Serve the wine in a mug or glass. Be careful not to burn yourself. If you're worried the wine is too hot, allow it to rest for 15 minutes before serving. Use a sieve to strain the mulled wine if you want to remove pulp before pouring into a mug.
Add honey to taste if you want the mulled wine sweeter. Add brandy or rum if desired.
