Gluehwein: A traditional German/Austrian holiday drink. A perfect hot drink for a cold night.
3/4 Cup water (or Orange Juice)
3/4 Cup sugar
1 Cinnamon Stick
10 Whole Cloves
1 bottle of red wine
1. In a sauce pan combine water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
2. Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel and place in simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes until thick and syrupy.
3. Pour in the wine and heat until steaming, but not simmering. Remove the orange halves.
