Traditional Mulled Wine (Glühwein) Recipe

Traditional Mulled Wine Glühwein Recipe

Add some spice to your next winter entertaining occasion with this fun and easy mulled wine recipe. In Germany, mulled wine is known as Glühwein ("glow wine") due to the hot glowing irons that were once used to warm it. An ancient wine cocktail, it is first thought to have been brought to wider Europe by the Romans in the second century A.D. Our traditional mulled wine recipe is roughly based on an 1861 recipe from Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management . Full of beautifully warming flavours, it's a sure-fire way to keep your guests smiling.
