This is a special Christmas light watching wine. I make this every year for the holidays. The guys would drive and the ladies would have this while we were out looking at the Christmas Lights. This is fun for Holiday Parties. The house would be filled with spices. It has the most wonderful smell.....This brings back my shopping memmories when I was in Germany, while out shopping the kiosks on the street they would sell it, nothing like drinking Gluhwein while you were out shopping in the snow, or looking at lights while the gents drive....
