Mulled Wine

Warming up the winters

Germans have little ways of making their long, cold winters more tolerable, and one of them is Glühwein (literally, "burning wine"), red wine to which sugar and spices such as cloves, cinammon, and cardamom are added, along with a nice slug of brandy, then warmed. It's most especially common during the Christmas markets set up in many Old Town squares in November and December, but available all winter long in many pubs, taverns, and other establishments throughout the city.
