Christmas Gluhwein

| Laura Jones

My husband and I met in Germany. We were in love, and while he was in the Air Force we dated long distance for 3 years. I was working at Johns Hopkins at the time. It was crazy and beautiful, all at the same time.

Every year around Christmas time, I would go to Germany and we would go to the German Christmas markets. It is such a quaint and romantic experience when you are dating. The Christmas markets have vendors and crafts, and are decorated with lights, a truly magical experience.

Typically it would be cold and lightly snowing, and often there’d be snow already on the ground. The setting is so romantic, we both looked forward to it all year. But the best part of the market was the gluhwein! Gluhwein is hot spiced red wine. We’d rent a mug for $0.10 and buy the gluhwein. Then, we’d walk around sipping and staying warm while enjoying the market.

My husband and I still have a tradition to drink Gluhwein every Christmas. It is great to have at your holiday parties as well. It is so festive! Here is the recipe:
