Glühwein recipe

So now that we are sure Santa won’t get lost and the reindeers know their way to our house, let’s sit back and relax with a glass of home-made Glühwein or mulled wine.
It is great for warming you up or for when friends drop by, as it can be made ahead and reheated.
Empty 2 bootles of fruity wine into a large pan.
Slice 4 oranges into 6 wedges each and add to wine.
Add all of the below: 
5 cloves, 
100ml brandy
2 cinnamon sticks
1tsp mixed spice
6 tbsp golden granulated sugar (more if you have a sweet tooth)
Warm gently over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Take care not to boil the mixture as it will cook out the alcohol. Ladle the wine into glasses and enjoy!

Hi Ingrid,
Hope you are having a wonderful time in the South. In honour of your absence, so to speak, I have used your gluhwein recipe for my party this afternoon.
I have already produced 38 mince pies (4 already tested...)
