Recipe by Bruins Fan

This recipe came from my husband's best friend who is a U.S. Marine. He had this drink in Germany. It is served in Germany outside in the winter and it really warms you up! Thanks Mike! This works best with a full bodied red wine.

I live in South Africa - we have just had a very cold snap & made this recipe last night........ FABULOUS.. enjoyed with freinds over a card game that ran into the early hours thanks to Gluwein... I think we had about 12 batches between 6 of us
