How about a hot wine to challenge the cold?

Hot wine is a traditional recipe in some countries for the winter season, ideal with sweets and biscuits. In England it is known as Mulled or Hot Wine (a mixture of wine, some spices and raisins), in Germany is known as Glühwein (made from hot wine and spices).

The mulled wine is a typical drink in many countries. Although it is a traditional Christmas drink, is also consumed throughout the winter. In Germany it is known as Glühwein, and in the Scandinavian countries as Glögg, with small differences.

The hot wine was first registered as mulled wine in Rome in the second century, spread by the Romans who traveled across Europe carrying the recipe. Hot wine is also popular in England and the United States. It is a typical drink for winters, as well as others as Hot Toddy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Merlot wine
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 10 cloves
  • 10 allspice berries
  • 6 small pieces of ginger
  • Zest of one orange
  • Orange slices

Preparation of hot wine:

Step 1:
In a saucepan mix water, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, berries and orange zest

Step 2:
Place over low heat for about 5 minutes.

Step 3:
Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.

Step 4:
Add the orange juice and put the preparation into a container.

Step 5:
Pour the red wine to the mix previously strained

Step 6:
Put the drink in a saucepan and simmer over low heat

Step 7:
Let cool and serve to your guests in glasses decorated with orange slices.

Another variant of hot wine is the Glögg, a type of Scandinavian hot wine made from red wine, korn or vodka spiced with cloves, ginger, cinnamon and cardamom, to serve accompanied with almonds and raisins.

If you want to give a little warmth to your home during this winter be sure to prepare it to enjoy in the company of your loved ones.
