This Glühwein recipe yields approximately 1 liter of lovely, spicy gluhwein which is especially satisfying when enjoyed around a fire with friends on cold winter nights. It is particularly enjoyed in the northern hemisphere over the festive season. You may add some fresh cranberries if you so wish. Some serve it with the star aniseed still floating as a garnish. You decide.
