Glühwein is synonymous with Christmas in Europe where its beautiful warm flavours of spice and red wine help to thaw the winter’s ice and snow. And although it might not be Christmas, the South African winter can definitely do with a warming winter drink. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan, heat until it is almost boiling and then strain into a warm bowl. Serve warm in a pretty glass and decorate with cinnamon sticks and a touch of citrus.
