Recipe: Traditional Glühwein
When winter weather swirls in, nothing could be cosier than a hot mug of glühwein that fills your house with a wonderful aroma and warms you up on a cold winter night. Recipe by our very own President, Daniel Frutiger.
200g raw sugar
750mL red wine
2 large orange peels
6 whole cloves
2 cinnamon quills
1 tsp ground nutmeg
Combine all ingredients and gently simmer on low-medium heat for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Strain to remove spices and orange peels.
Serve hot/warm in glasses/mugs.
Chef’s tip: add one sachet of rosehip tea for the first 5 minutes of simmering (and then remove) for a wonderful and uplifting floral flavour.
