On of the best thing you can find in the Christmas Market is Mulled Wine! When you body is shivering because of the freezing winter, this cup of jolly will warm up your body instantly!
Mulled wine is a term used to describe wine, usually a red variety, infused with spices and served warm. Mulled wine is popular throughout Europe and has been served during the winter months for centuries. Depending on the country of origin, mulled wine may go by different names such as Glogg (Sweden), Vin Chaud (France), or Glühwein (Germany).
The ingredients for mulled wine vary depending on the region. Common spices used in mulled wine include cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, anise, allspice, and vanilla. The addition of fruit or sugar to sweeten the mixture also varies from recipe to recipe. Bitter orange is a common additive, but some recipes also call for apples, figs, ginger, or even raisins.
Cinnamon, apple and raisins are my favourite. What is yours?
