Glu Glu on Gluhwein

We’re entering the season of warm drinks, cozy fireplaces and staying indoors. It’s the time to spice up and what better way than with a favourite hot mulled wine recipe. There are a lot of versions of mulled wine in every culture, the most known is probably the traditional German glühwein recipe usually served in the evenings after a particular cold day.

Here’s a recipe to try for a de-alcoholised mulled wine:

  • 2 bottles of Lautus Savvy Red
  • 2 Oranges, sliced into rounds
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 fresh bay leaves
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 vanilla pod (or a teaspoon of vanilla extract)
  • 200g caster sugar


In large saucepan bring all ingredients to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes and keep warm for up to 3 hours.

Serve using a large ladle and garnish with orange slices, cinnamon sticks and star anise.
