Embrace the Winter Spirit with Glühwein and Caramelised Almonds - A Festive Recipe for Cosy Evenings


Embrace the Winter Magic

As winter arrives in New Zealand, it's the perfect time to embrace the warmth and comfort of the season. If you've ever experienced winter in Europe, you may have fond memories of sipping on a steaming cup of Mulled Wine, known as Glühwein in Germany. The fragrant blend of spices and the rich, spiced wine create a cosy atmosphere that evokes feelings of winter festivities. Paired with our irresistible caramelised almonds, or gebrannte Mandeln, this combination takes you on a nostalgic journey to European winter markets. In this blog post, we'll share a delightful Glühwein recipe and explore how it perfectly complements the delightful crunch and sweetness of our caramelised almonds.
Invoking Winter Magic with Glühwein and Caramelised Almonds: Glühwein is a beloved traditional beverage that warms the body and soul during the chilly winter months. The recipe is simple yet delightful, allowing you to recreate the winter market experience in the comfort of your own home. Here's our version of this classic Mulled Wine recipe:



  • 1 bottle of red wine (choose a robust and fruity variety)

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • 8 whole cloves

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • 4 tablespoons of honey (adjust according to your preferred sweetness)

  • Optional: a splash of brandy or rum for an extra kick


  1. Pour the red wine into a large saucepan and place it over low heat.

  2. Add the sliced orange, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and Honey. Stir gently to combine.

  3. Allow the mixture to heat gently, but avoid boiling it, as high heat can affect the flavour of the wine.

  4. Let the wine simmer for about 15-20 minutes, allowing the spices to infuse and the flavours to meld together.

  5. If desired, add a splash of brandy or rum for additional warmth and depth of flavour. Stir gently.

  6. Once heated to your desired temperature, remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the Glühwein to remove the spices and orange slices.

  7. Serve the aromatic Glühwein in heatproof glasses or mugs, garnished with a fresh orange slice or a cinnamon stick.

Pairing with Caramelised Almonds: To complete the winter experience, serve your Glühwein alongside our delectable caramelised almonds, or gebrannte Mandeln. These crunchy treats are a beloved staple in European winter markets, capturing the essence of the season with their sweet and nutty flavour.
