Hot Mulled Wine Recipe: Traditional Christmas Drink in Europe.


This Sunday I woke up not feeling very well, but since I didn't want to take any medications I thought it would be great to start this Christmas season with a natural "healer" that also happens to be a very popular Christmas drink in Europe - Hot Mulled Wine (aka Glühwein). A few years ago while Andrey and I were in Russia during Christmas holidays he was able to treat my extremely bad cold with this miraculous drink within just one day! And it tastes just like Christmas - can it get any better?;-) Oh, yeah, it can, cause it's also very easy and fun to make!


 WHAT I USED:

There's many different recipes out there online. The one I used is pretty simple and quick. 
  • Red Wine - I used Pinot Noir
  • Orange
  • Ground Cloves
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice - Love that combo!
  • Honey
  • Vanilla Beans


WHAT I DID:
I was not using specific amounts of each ingredient while I was preparing the drink. I simply first poured wine into a saucepan, then added some honey, spices, sliced orange and brought it to a slow boil. After that I let it simmer for about 5 minutes, then strained and served in tea cups with cinnamon sticks. That's IT! Nothing can beat THAT, right? So much goodness in one drink♥♥♥
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! And all the decorating chaos didn't drive you crazy yet;-) 
Don't forget to enjoy the season - that's what we have it for!

  4. Машенька, спасибо за рецепт!!
    В моем сознании глинтвейн неразрывно связан с Рождеством. Я к этому согревающему напитку пристрастилась в Германии. Там без ароматного Glühwein не обходится ни один рождественский базар.

  12. Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures.

This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.
