Ingredients
Peel of 1/2 lemon
60 grams sugar
1/8 liter water
1/2 cinnamon stick
1 liter red wine
4 cloves
Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon

Put cinnamon, cloves, and lemon peel in a paper tea filter; tie it shut with a piece of white yarn. Together with the water and the sugar, bring it to a boil in a pot; let sit for 20 minutes. Take out the tea filter, add the red wine, and heat. The art is to heat the wine up as close to its boiling point temperature without ever getting it to boil (the most important thing about making gluehwein is that the wine must never boil). Finally, add lemon juice to taste.

Possible variations:

1. Omit the lemon juice or use orange juice instead. 2. Omit the lemon peel.
3. Instead of boiling the tea filter, put it directly into the wine, heat, and let soak for 30 to 45 minutes. (You don't need water this way.) 4. If you chop up the ingredients before putting them in the filter, you get a more intensive flavor.
5. Add a few drops of vanilla. 6. Add a little cardamom or ginger.
7. Vary the quantities of cinnamon, cloves, and sugar. 8. To get the possibly most famous type of Gluehwein, the Nuerenberger Christkindlesmarkt-Gluehwein, use blueberry wine instead of red wine.
