gluwine Recipe

  German Beverage

a bottle of red wine
handful of whole cloves
handful of whole star anise
sections of one orange
about 2tsp ground cinnamon
about 1 tsp nutmeg

I always played with the amount of ingredients until it tasted like I thought it should. First just get the wine warm without letting it boil. Then add in the spices and orange sections. You might want to squeeze a few of the orange sections to make sure the juice gets out and mixed in well. Then let it simmer without boiling for about 15 minutes or so. After that I would pour it through a strainer to get the whole spices out. Serve warm.
You can play with the ingredients on spiced wine to suite your taste. I learned this one while living with a large number of people from Germany. But, we were in China so perhaps a few of the normal ingredients couldn't be found. It always seemed good to me. I wouldn't buy terribly expensive wine.
