As you look at other gluhwein recipes, I think you will see a key difference. This recipe appropriately adds the wine at the end and only until warmed, thereby maintaining the alcohol content of the wine. Fantastic recipe. I made some prior to Thanksgiving dinner prep and put it into a good coffee carafe... Enjoyed it for the subsequent 4 hours. Thanks for posting!
Also should be stated to use a dry red wine.
I tried first tried some at the Christkindl Market in Chicago, and really wanted to make my own. After following this recipe it tasted exactly the same! Warms you up on the coldest days. 0
Made this for my Austrian In-laws during the holiday and it was a hit! THANKS!
Excellent, and easy recipe! Much better than the ready-mixed bottles that I was used to, especially if you use a half decent bottle of wine. A success with wintery dinner and friends!
I make this every Christmas Eve! My husband and I enjoy it so much. I use a little less sugar and water, and sometimes I add a few lemon slices too. Great for cold winter nightw or holiday parties.
I halved the quantity I made because it's not really Gluhwein weather here right now. I've never made Gluwein before; just enjoyed it! Very easy to make and I'm really looking forward to making this again in winter. I used orange juice and merlot (& no water). Very delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Kree. Wunderbar!
