Roughly translated, Glühwein means “glowing wine”, so naturally, we are here for it. This European tradition is lovely hot and with alcohol or without, but must come with a festive list of herbs and spices like orange and lemon peel, cinnamon, clove, fennel, anise star and cardamom. Toss in a cinnamon stick or plump shot of kirsch liquor, and get ready to glow!
