How to make a Bad bottle of Wine a Good Bottle
Have you ever had a bottle of red wine that tasted a bit sour and you don’t want to throw it away or give it away because it cost perhaps a shiny penny? Or perhaps you don’t want to make the mistake of giving it away back to the same person who gave it too you. That could be such a silence insult, lol.
Here in Germany they have a red wine call Mulled wine more famous name is Glühwein. It is typically sold at the Christmas Market/Weihnachtmarket to keep visitors warm as they enjoy the holiday festivities. I will post photos tomorrow and a little information about the Christmas Market in Germany. Right now I would like to give you the ingredients that you can use when you have a bottle of red wine that you don’t fancy too much. Perhaps you could even make it for the Christmas and New Year holiday for friends and family to try. It would be an interesting conversation.
1 bottle of dry/bad red wine (750 ml)
2 sticks of cinnamon
3 tablespoons of sugar/4 tsp of Honey
some cardamom (or ginger)
Heat the red wine in a pot (don’t boil). Cut the lemon into slices and add to the wine. Then add the cinnamon, cloves, sugar and a little cardamom (to taste). Heat everything for about 5 minutes – do not boil – and let stand for about an hour. Before serving, reheat and strain. Serve in prewarmed glasses or mugs not in a thin glass that will shatter as soon as the hot wine touch the glass. A nice thick glass or coffee cup will work.
Typical Glühwein does not have a slice of lemon or orange in the cup. I am using it just for decoration and to enjoy the last sip of wine:)
