    You can buy Gluhwein or mulled wine in bottles, but it's just as easy to make yourself.

    Ingredients
    1 bottle cheapish red wine
    50-75g sugar depending on how sweet you like it
    1/2 lemon
    1/2 orange
    teasp whole cloves
    a cinnamon stick brokrn into 3 or 4 pieces
    1 star anise
    a wineglass of brandy or other spirit, Amarretto is nice

    Slice the lemon and orange, place all except the brandy into a saucepan and heat very slowly, if it starts to boil you'll lose all the alcohol. Just before serving add the brandy, Drink and feel glowing inside.

    I've been making a non-alcoholic version with apple juice, cinnamon and cloves. Add some ginger for a bit of zing. I do it without adding sugar then each can add to his/her own taste.
    Some years ago I bought a little liquid heater - like a kettle but only heats to about 80º - it's perfect for this stuff. Heats it and keepts it warm without boiling.

    I've got one of those Baby Burco things, kept especially for the annual Gluhwein party.
    I just love the name Gluhwein=Glow-wine!
