Gluhwein #2

Author/Submitted by: pstryjew@colsun.Central.Sun.COM (Pete Stryjewski)
Servings: 6
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brandy / Ethnic / Vodka / Wine

1  gallon  Red wine
8  fluid ounces  Brandy or vodka
1  cup  Sugar
3  tablespoons  Lemon juice
1    Cardamom
6    Cinnamon sticks
6  slices  Lemon, 5mm thick
1    Bay leaf

1. Chuck all ingredients in large pot EXCEPT for the sugar. Cover, simmer gently for 10 mins, taste. Now add 2 teaspoons of sugar per person (level, NOT heaped). Simmer for 10 mins.

2. Place lemon slices in glass mugs and ladle the concoction into glasses. The lemon must float. If not, discard lemon and cut new slices. The secret is to drink the hot mixture through the lemon; it gives a very distinctive flavour.

CAUTION: DO NOT ALLOW THE MIXTURE TO BOIL!!!! After all, you wouldn't want all that alcohol to evaporate, would you?
