Glühg! Glühg! Glühg!
Nothing's more cozy in the winter than a glass of wine... except for a warm wine cocktail!
Check out Glühwein from NYC restaurant, Loreley.
1 bottle red wine
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup brandy
1/4 cup sugar
1 star anise
4 cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)
Cut the lemon and orange in half and stick cloves into the skin. Add wine, cinnamon, star anise, and fruit with cloves to a pot and bring to a boil - once it’s boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove from heat and squeeze juice halves into wine mixture. Discard the fruit, cloves, cinnamon, and star anise. Add sugar and brandy and stir until sugar dissolves. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
