Gluehwein

Gluehwein is a German/Austrian winter-holiday drink that most tourists know as an after-ski drink. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. Watch it : Since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick! Drink when
you really have come in and do not have to go out again! This is the one my father used to make for New Years Eve.

Makes 6 servings .

3/4 cup and 2 teaspoons water
10 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange
3/4 cup white sugar
1 (750 milliliter) bottle red wine
