Chef's Note

Christmas in Alsace
Made with a red Burgundy or Bordeaux, or even a red wine from Alsace, this famous mulled wine is part of local Christmas tradition. There is always a mulled wine seller present as people stroll through the Christmas markets to warm the bodies and spirits of the shoppers.   

More typical of Alsace, though less widespread, is "Kandelzucker," Alsatian white wine combined with honey.

For 1 liter mulled wine

- 1 liter (4 cups) red wine
- 250 g (8 oz.) sugar cubes
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 star anise
- 2 cloves
- a pinch of nutmeg
- zest of half a lemon
- zest of half an orange
  1. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer 3-5 minutes.
  3. Serve hot in glasses, decorated with lemon or orange slices.
