In these cold, bleak days and during the holidays, there's nothing nicer than indulging your loved ones and yourself. Glühwein is a delicious, festive drink that'll warm you up. What's more, the EcoStoof® is perfect for making it. For its flavour to develop, this drink needs to be heated for a long time at a low temperature. Otherwise, its alcohol evaporates.
That it contains wine will surprise no one. But you also need to add some other ingredients to achieve its sweet, spicy taste, like orange, cinnamon and aniseed. To serve six, you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 litre red wine
- 1 orange (preferably organic)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 4 cloves
- 2 tablespoons sugar (adjust to taste)
- 2 star anise
- 1/2 lemon (preferably organic)
Put all the ingredients in a pot and heat. Allow the flavours to develop by placing in the Ecostoof®. This will take at least quarter of an hour. But ideally, leave it longer so that the various flavours permeate the wine.
