Check out today’s Teatime Titbit: Fun on Friday – How to make your own mulled wine.
Yesterday I had my first & second mulled wine for this season, pushing out the boat I know.
The mug hit my lips, taking a tentative sip, a trickle of gorgeous hot stuff, flowed over my taste buds. Violà – it was there – that wonderful taste like all the years before, heavenly.
Year in, year out, ‘Glühwein’ is on everyone’s lip (quite literally) but people often don’t know/ can’t remember (possibly as a result of the drinking the stuff) the English term ‘mulled wine’.
Have you ever made your own Glühwein? What about branching out and trying out the English cousin mulled wine à la Jamie Oliver? Check out the following link:
To help you with the shopping list, I’ve put in one of two translations of ingredients to save you the hassle – but with the method, you’re on your own.
Caster sugar = extrafeiner Zucker
Clove = Nelke
Cinnamon = Zimt
Bay leaf = Lorbeerblatt
Nutmeg = Muskat
Vanilla pod = Vanilleschote
Star anise = Sternanis
Good luck & happy sipping.
