This is a great recipe and very forgiving. You don't have to have all the exact ingredients to make it work but the more you have the better it will turn out. We've been to the Christmas markets...

I haven't been to Germany and haven't tasted this in the Christmas markets, so this is an opinion from a more "typical" American. Like the 1st poster said, this is a good "base" recipe to adapt ...

I got this recipe from a weihnachtsmarkt in Germany. The owners of the stand did not mind giving me the recipe. This is authentic as you can get.

It was easy to make and the taste of the Gluhwein brought back great memories from my trip to Germany. I loved the recipe.

This is the third year I've made gluhwein and the third recipe I've tried. This one is a keeper. Went over really well at my Christmas potluck.
