Method

In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer

Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the simmering water

Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water

Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy

For alcohol based Glühwein

Pour in 750 ml red wine and heat until steaming but not simmering

Remove the clove-studded orange halves

Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break)

For non alcoholic based Glühwein

Add grape juice instead of wine

To Serve

Best served hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break), alternatively Glühwein can also be heated in a microwave proof mug.
