Spiced Mulled Wine / Glühwein

I found this recipe visiteurope.com . What could be better as being on a christmasmarket in vienna with a gluhwein in your hands. I can't think of anything better. The Gluehwein is a spiced mulled wine that austrians love to drink during the winter season. I know that there exist many variations of the Glühwein, so if you would like to share your recipe write a post...recipes are always welcome :)

(for 10 people):

What to buy:

* 2 bottles of good quality red wine
* 2 cups of water
* juice of 2 lemons
* 6 cloves
* 2 cinnamon sticks
* 2 oranges - cut into bitsize pieces
* oranges for decoration

How to make it:
Put all ingedience in a pot and bring it close to boil.

For additional taste cut 2 oranges in to bitsize pieces and add to the wine.
Let simmer.
Remove glove, cinnamon stick before serving it into lightly prewarmed glasses. Decorate glasses with an orangeslice.
Enjoy and drink responsibly.

I just returned from Vienna a couple of days ago and want to try and recreate some of the wonderful food we tasted there. Can you suggest a type of red wine for the Gluwein? We were lucky to be there during the holdiday season and sample our share at the Christmas markets. YUM

I normally use a Shiraz for the mulled wine but you can also try a Port or Bordeaux wine. Don't be afraid to experiment ;)
