Recipe by kitty.rock

Germans enjoy Glühwein or "Glow Wine" quite a bit around Christmas and New Year's Day. A favorite place to sip a warming glass is outside at the Christmas market. Unfortunately, the recipe did not say what size bottles of wine, so I've estimated that here. From "German Holiday Recipes from the German Embassy 2007" and the "additions" are my own from my experiences at the Christmas Markets in Berlin. Posted for ZWT6.
