gluhwein gluhwein-2

Try this festive, heart-healthy, hot, spiced, red wine at your next winter party or holiday gathering! It’s a crowd-pleaser. Bonus: your house will smell amazing while it’s cooking!

I lived in Germany for several years after college. My downstairs neighbor was a very friendly Grandmother who we all affectionately called “Oma”. As a foreigner in a new place, I was so pleased when she invited me over one Saturday to teach me how to cook authentic German cuisine. It became the start of something wonderful. Every other Saturday, Oma and I would rendezvous in her kitchen so that I could learn the art of German language and German dishes. This authentic Gluhwein recipe was one of the many German delicacies that we cooked together. It’s something that I make several times every winter.

Gluhwein is a traditional German delight. During Christmas time, which the Germans take very seriously, you will find mugs of gluhwein all over the enjoyable little Christmas markets that spring up all over Germany in the wintertime. Sipping on this fragrant beverage while it’s cold outside will warm you from the inside out. Try it at your next winter party or holiday gathering.
