This hot spiced wine punch is a staple at the Christmas festivites in Germany. Everywhere you go during the month of December, you will most likely find someone selling mugs of hot, steaming Gluehwein. Here is a version I adapted from "Authentic German Home-Style Recipes" by Gini Youngkrantz. Posted by request. I am guessing on the cook time - it should be just until hot, but NOT boiling.
