Easy Mulled Wine with Christkindl Wine
Going to a Christmas Party and you need a quick hostess gift? Give a bottle of Christkindl Spiced Red Wine, Mulled Cherry Wine or Apple Punch Wine. Then add a cute ornament and you’ll have a great gift! All Christkindl Wines are best served warm, making them the perfect wine to use when making Mulled Wine. All of the Christkindl Wines can be purchased at Aldi for a very reasonable price, I’m pretty sure we paid $4.99 per bottle. Making mulled wine in a crock pot makes this drink an easy “self-serve” way for your guests to stay warm
If you would like to add fruit juice to this recipe add; apple juice with the Apple Punch Christkindl Wine, Cherry Juice or Apple-Cherry Juice with the Mulled Cherry Wine and Cranberry Juice with the Glühwein. My favorite was the Mulled Cherry Wine and my hubby really liked the Apple Punch Wine. Let’s us know what your favorite is.
Germany’s Favorite Christmas Drink
Every culture has its holiday customs and the associated dishes and drinks that are served. Glühwein is Germany’s favorite Christmas drink that is served with everything from gingerbread to meats and cheeses. Glühwein is similar to mulled wine, a favorite drink to sip on during the long, cold winter months in many cultures. The German word, glühwein, translates to mean ‘glow wine’ in English.
Perfect to serve on a cold winter night.
