The ultimate christmas feeling: the smell of glühwein through the whole house. Oh I love that smell so much!! If only it could be christmas all year long!
This version is alcohol-free, a nice plus for me since I'm no fan of alcohol! It still gives this heart-warming smell and it's really easy and quick to make as well!!
There's not much to say about it. I thought it was truly wonderful! Depending on whether you leave the spices in shorter or longer you get a sweeter or more tangy taste. It also depends on the amount of spices, feel free to add more or less or even more. According to the original recipe, cardemom should do well in the warm drink as well.
1,5 liter applejuice
3 cinnamon sticks
5 whole star anise
10 dried cloves
1. Poor the applejuice in a small pan and add all the other ingredients. Heat the pan on a low fire. Make sure the applejuice doesnt boil!
2. Leave for about half an hour or until you think it tastes good. Serve warm!
It's real simple isn't it? I couldnt even write it down in more than two steps!! That saved me some energy I could spend in the pictures! haha!
Some more pictures of the juice! I like the sight of all the spices floating in the apple-juice! xP And dont you just love my mug? Thanks to the loveliest Shawnie for that one! ^-^
