Glühwein is particularly enjoyed at atmospheric Christmas Markets during the Advent season. Visit Innsbruck in Tirol, for instance, for some of the most beautiful and romantic Christmas Markets in the Alpine region. The secret to getting a great Glühwein is the right mixture of red wine, cinnamon sticks, sugar, oranges and cloves.
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 cloves and cinnamon sticks before serving it into lightly pre-warmed glasses.
Decorate glasses with an orange slice.
Enjoy and drink responsibly!
