Because it is cold here I am having Gluhwein tonight! You can make this with cider too but tonight we're going to use the following:-
1 bottle of red wine (if you have any left after the weekend, that is!)
3 tablespoons of sugar
2 slices of lemon
2 slices of orange
1 cinnamon stick
Warm all the ingredients in a saucepan until very hot. (DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT test this using a metal spoon...your tongue will not thank you) and be careful not to boil the mixture (no wasting of the alcohol please).
Serve in a heated glass, or bucket, if you can't be bothered getting up and refilling your glass too often. I find this works best when you have someone running about pandering to you!
