Having just returned from our annual December pilgrimage to Munich where we renewed our love for "Gluewein" (and beer!), I've been making a batch every week. Gluewein is the hot, spiced red or white wine sold at every Cristkindlemarkt in all of the burgs and dorfs in Germany, and translates to something like "Glow Wine". It is such a treat to warm you up in cold weather! If you are making it in large quantities (i.e. for a party) use a crockpot. Here's my version:

In a medium saucepan on low heat, mix together 2 c water, 1/2 c sugar, 1 stick of cinnamon (crumbled), and 5-6 whole cloves. Simmer for at least 10-20 min. to bring out the spice flavors.
Add the rind and juice of one orange and one lime or lemon. Simmer for another 10-20 min. (or longer).
Add one bottle of inexpensive red wine (or white, if you prefer) and heat but DO NOT BOIL!
You can use a strainer or slotted spoon to remove the rinds and spices. Serve hot in cups. Zum Volle!

This is the perfect recipe for some of the boxed supermarket wines. I've been using Banrock Station Merlot. Don't use the good stuff here...it won't be appreciated. You can also refrigerate it and reheat in the microwave. For an extra punch, add a bit of "schnapps" or liquor such as rum, to the cup before serving.
