A few Fridays ago hubby and me went to the German Christmas market to sample some Glühwein and traditional German food. (It was a bit of a grey day but we still had fun!)
1 bottle of drinkable red wine
60g/2oz castor sugar
Orange - one half studded with cloves the other sliced
large glug of brandy
Put the wine, sugar, orange studded with cloves and cinnamon sticks in a pan to gently heat. Just before serving pour in the brandy and put orange slices in the glass before pouring over the hot wine.
