Last Christmas I traveled with my family to Germany and Austria to experience the infamous Christmas markets. It was overwhelmingly magical, and I’m trying my best to recreate a little bit of that magic throughout the holiday season in Calgary. One of the most consistent products at the Christmas markets is a mulled wine, known as gluhwein. Each vendor’s product had its own unique taste, and each city has it’s own mugs in which this concoction is served. I found this recipe for a homemade gluhwein, and it turned out beyond my expectations. Now all I need is to fill my thermos, get bundled up and walk around the neighborhood admiring the lights.
