Traditional Glühwein (Mulled Wine)

Traditional Gluhwein Recipe

Visit Germany at this time of year, particularly the Rheinland, and you’re likely to run into one of the world famous German markets. Of course, they do visit Britain and other places, but the experience isn’t quite the same! At said market, you’ll encounter all manner of German sausage, bratwurst, and sweet breads such as Stollen. However, there is one other commodity that no German market would be complete without; glühwein, or mulled wine. Indeed, one of the most satisfying characteristics of the German markets is witnessing hoards of people shuffling about in their winter attire, sipping at the rim of a piping hot cup of glühwein (mulled wine). If it’s that feeling you’re after then you need look no further, for you have found just the recipe!

Bellini Spritzer

Let’s face it, the summer here in Britain hasn’t really begun – rain is a seemingly permanent fixture at the moment. However, being British means putting up with the occasional imperfect summer and battling on regardless. This takes on different forms depending on the person, with some acting as though trousers have been outlawed during the summer months. In my case, it means making a jolly nice cocktail when the weather is lacking the necessary clemency for it to be enjoyed in the open air. This is my first ever cocktail recipe, so please enjoy it even if the weather isn’t quite ideal.
