Glühwein is enjoyed at traditional Christmas Markets or after a day on the Austrian slopes at one of the huts.
The secret to getting a great Glühwein is the right mixture of red wine, cinnamon stick, sugar, oranges and cloves.


Serves 10
  • 2 bottles of good quality red wine
  • 2 cups of water
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 5 oz (140 g) sugar
  • 6 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 oranges - cut into bite-size pieces
  • oranges for decoration

How to make it:

Put all ingredients in a pot and bring it close to boil. For additional taste, cut 2 oranges into bite-size pieces and add to the wine. Let simmer but not boil. Remove clove and cinnamon stick before serving it into lightly pre-warmed glasses. Decorate glasses with an orange slice.

Enjoy and drink responsibly!

Guten Appetit!
