Instructions

  1. Combine your red wine, white wine, sugar, orange, lemon together in a large aluminum pot
  2. Next, put your cloves, allspice, and cardamom pods either in cheesecloth or a metal tea ball, then submerge it into the wine mixture
  3. Bring your pot over a medium-low heat and cover for 15 minutes
  4. After 15 minutes, scoop your orange and lemon pieces with a ladle. When you've gotten a piece, squeeze the citrus juices into the pot of gluhwein. Once you've squeezed the piece of fruit, re-add its rinds into the pot
  5. Cover and let your gluhwein simmer for another 15 minutes over the same medium-low heat
  6. After the next 15 minutes (so 30 minutes total), remove the cheesecloth spice bundle from your gluhwein, then reduce the heat of your stove to the lowest possible simmer
  7. Keep your gluhwein simmering at this low heat until ready to serve, then enjoy!
