Glühwein... the perfect winter warmer

The result of the right mixture using red-wine, cinnamon stick, sugar, oranges and cloves is the delicious taste of Glühwein. Glühwein is mostly consumed either at traditional Christmas markets or after a day on the Austrian slopes in one of the cosy mountain huts.
