Mulled Winter Wine or Glühwein

Serves a party Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 3 hours   Rated:

When in Europe during the winter, this is the fragrance you can literally smell everywhere you go. I do love the Winter Markets of Europe. It is freezing cold, (usually snow on the ground) and people are rugged up and it is dark by around 4pm, but it seems the whole world is out tramping the cobbled streets, eating, shopping and drinking glühwein. Mulled spiced wine. It is the drink of choice though hot chocolate and coffee do a pretty good showing as well.

This is perfect for a cold night if you are entertaining. The great thing about it is that you can make it and let it simmer for days if needs be. You can just keep adding more wine/juice/brandy to the slow cooker. Go Glühwein something. Immediately!
