Admittedly, winter in Germany is not my favorite time, but Christmas…Christmas time IS MAGICAL here. The Christmas markets are the stuff of fairy tales and old-time xmas charm (perhaps another post on that later), and one of my favorite things about walking around a Christmas market is warming my hands and spirits with some hot mulled wine, glühwein. And when a German friend taught me how to make my own, well now I can warm my soul by the fire in my own home. And someday, when I go back to Texas, I can take a little bit of the Christmas market feeling home with me.
Here’s the recipe so you can relish in the spirit of Christmas the German way too!
