glühwein and other warm drinks

Hi all...

Here are a couple of my favorite winter drinks. They are simply fantastic to enjoy on a cold winter evening…and simple to make! Any other warm drink suggestions?

glühwein
makes about 2 liters

2 liters light red wine (Swiss Dôle or Blauburgunder)
200 gr. sugar
2 oranges, cut into two pieces
2 lemons, cut into two pieces
2 cinnamon sticks, broken
2 vanilla pods, split
12 cloves
12 black peppercorns

Heat all ingredients together over moderate heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove the pot from the heat, cover, and allow the mixture to brew for one night. Strain, then gently re-heat whenever you are ready to drink.


glühmost (non-alcoholic version)
makes about 2,5 liters

3 liters apple juice (filtered and sweetened)
2 oranges, split into two pieces
2 cinnamon sticks, broken
2 vanilla pods, split
10 whole cloves
2 star anise pods
1 Tbl. fennel seeds
1 4-cm piece fresh ginger
sugar, as necessary

Heat all ingredients together over moderate heat until the mixture boils. Remove the pot from the heat, cover, and allow the mixture to brew for one night. Strain, then gently re-heat whenever you are ready to drink. Add more sugar as necessary.

Jack

Yea, but where do you buy brown sugar? (Just joking!)

Sounds wonderful & I WILL try this !

I'm not much of a chef and these all seem WAY too complicated for me to make myself, but perhaps someone would like to make a house party out of it and we could sample all the recipes ...?

Re: glühwein and other warm drinks

My favourite is Feuerzangenbowle. It's basically Glühwein with a lot more kick.

When the Glühwein is ready to serve, suspend a large block of sugar (Zuckerhut) above the pot. Then - and this is the fun part - douse the sugar in OP rum and set it on fire. Keep adding rum and fire until all sugar has caramelised and fallen into the mix. Then serve.

Apart from having a lot more sugar and alcohol (ok, some burns off, but obviously not all of it), the appearance of the burning OP rum is awesome:

Re: glühwein and other warm drinks

Cheers Jack,

I'll have to try the Glühwein. It's really one of my favourite drinks after skiing. My wife bought the ready mixed stuff from Coop and I must say that it tastes terrible. Nothing like in after ski.

I better start cooking my own, I suppose!

Hi all...
Any other warm drink suggestions?
Jack
family legend has it that i was licking out the glasses at the tender age of four to five so this is why Eggnog is one of my fave warm and cold winter drinks

Eggnog 1st Variation

4 eggs
30gr(1oz) sugar
1 Litre (1 ¾pint) milk, chilled
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence or vanilla sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Nutmeg
Beat three whole eggs and 1 yolk until very thick and light in
colour. Add 1 2/3 tablespoons sugar, beating in thoroughly. Stir in
milk, vanilla, and salt and pour the mixture into glasses.
Beat remaining egg white until almost stiff, add remaining sugar and
beat until peaks appear. Top each glass of eggnog with a spoonful of
meringue, sprinkle with nutmeg and serve immediately. If you are not
going to use right away, be sure to refrigerate until ready to
serve*. You can keep in the refrigerator overnight to enjoy in the
morning.
*As with any egg product, if the eggnog sits out, throw it away to
avoid the possibility of Salmonella!


Egg Nog 2nd Variation
30ml(1 fl oz) Brandy
30ml(1 fl oz) Dark Rhum
1 Egg
1tsp. Sugar
Milk
freshly ground nutmeg
Add all ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker, shake well,
pour in tumbler glass and fill up with milk, stir and sprinkle some
nutmeg on top.


Eggnog 3rd Variation

1 bottle of whisky
500ml(17.5 fl oz) milk
4 egg yolks
250gr(8.5oz) Sugar
Nutmeg
Heat the milk with half the amount of the sugar in a pan, then mix
remaining sugar with the egg yolks and the whisky. Carefully add the
whisky/egg/sugar mix to the hot milk mix, and while adding keep on
beating the mixture thoroughly.
Pour in heatproof glasses and sprinkle nutmeg on top.

-----------------------------------------

Mulled wine is also something we love to serve when having friends round,it's amazing how quick they open up and the evening turns into a giggle fest why could that be
The word "mulled" simply means heated and spiced. Many liquids can be mulled -mead, cider, and of course wine. Mulled wine is a traditional favorite in cooler locations, and goes well with the various celebrations that come around the end
of the year. Moving forward to the 1500s, cookbooks listed methods of mulling "Clarrey", or Bordeaux. Recipes involved honey, cinnamon, cardamon, galingale and of course
French wine. Mulled wine was a favorite in Victorian England, and Negus - a type of mulled wine - was even served to children at their birthday parties. Today, mulled wine is a staple at many holiday parties.

Mulled wines today are as varied as sangria recipes. There are different styles in every part of the world - some favor using white wine, others red. Some add in only a few spices, while others pour in oranges, cloves, twelve spices and more fruit for color! Your mulled drink is limited only by your own imagination!


Mulled wine German style ( Glühwein)

1liter(1¾pt) red wine
125ml(4 fl oz) water
5 tblsp. Sugar
1/2 stem of dried cinnamon
3 cloves
Zest of ½ lemon
Bring to a boil the sugar and spices with the water, let simmer on
low heat for 30 min. Pass through a sieve, mix with the wine and
bring everything just below boiling point.
Serve in heatproof glasses.


As many of us have children and they obviously can not delect the mulled wine or eggnog, I prepare a kind of mulled tea

For approx two liters of water I add two teabags of each black tea, rosehip (Hagebutten/cynorrodhon) and limeblossom ( Lindenblüten/tilleul),then a sliced lemon and a sliced orange and a stalk of dried cinammon also go into the pot, 2-3 cloves are optional as their taste is not exactly after kids palates and let that simmer for 10 minutes,(don't boil or the citrus fruits will give a bitter taste to the tea).

Sweeten to taste with honey or tea et voilà the kiddos got their own special winterwarmer drink

Re: glühwein and other warm drinks

I never really got into hot alcoholic drinks, except maybe a glass of Glühwein per winter. I prefer Punsch syrup that is sold by retailers. My favorite is orange flavor, but there is also an apple variety and an alcohol free rhum Punsch concentrate on sale.

Jack: would you use a light red wine for the Glühwein? I'd always thought the 'heavier' the better.

My fave -

Sake

200ml in a small pan, heat gently.
Serve at body temperature in porcelain cups, with a very good friend lying on the rug in front of the fire...

Re: glühwein and other warm drinks

ooh yeah, warm sake. Gotta love it.

Just don't have too many of them when you're in a Japanese restaurant and you're on good terms with the manager: impromptu martial arts demonstrations are sure to follow.

Even though it is indeed fun to throw someone across the room in a restaurant and not get in trouble for it, the next morning is a very sorry time indeed.

My personal preference is lighter reds, primarily because the tannins often present in heavier reds tend to get a bit on the bitter side - especially if cooked too long or too harshly... IMHO, it is actually one of the few good uses for a Swiss Dôle...

Hmmmm. . . . I'm more of a cold unfiltered sake drinker myself.

Hot Chocolate must be made with milk not water

Glühwein you can buy in the Aldi warmed up in the microwave, or pan is really yummy

You're right!

Maybe even a splash of cream if you're feeling a little naughty, too..
