WINE NOTES: Gluhwein
Share to
altHello. I trust you have all enjoyed some great Malbec wines this past couple of months.
For the month of December I would like share with you not a wine varietal, but rather a beautiful European concoction, Gluhwein.
Called Gluhwein in Austria, The Netherlands & Germany'; Mulled wine in Britain or Gløgg in the Nordic region'; this drink is best enjoyed during the cold, harsh winter months. 
It is generally made of claret. Honestly speaking this is the kind I am familiar with although I understand it can be made out of port as well.
You can make Gluhwein at home by warming up or heating, red wine and adding cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, orange zest, vanilla, star anise & sugar.
The result is a light tasting wine with a myriad of spices that are both sweet and ever evolving as you sip away. It's always good to enjoy with friends, family and colleagues as a way of sharing a lazy afternoon with a heart-warming concoction. More interestingly, you can make this recipe your own by experimenting with various ingredients and spices, such as my twist, using pineapple.
Alternatively, for those wishing to indulge in a more potent cocktail, a shot of rum or brandy can be added to enhance its taste. If, however, you are looking for a bit more sugar in it, try adding a lighted rum soaked sugar cube to the mix.
I invite you to enjoy this wonderful mix at The St. Regis Bar in December where a buffet of condiments is available to personalise your glass.
I look forward then to welcoming you this month and meeting you personally over a glass of heart-warming Gluhwein.
