Oma’s spiced red wine

Illustration for article titled Last Call: Omas spiced red wine and a YouTube treasure trove of historic concerts

It seems like the entire world north of, say, Atlanta will be frozen this weekend. Here in Missoula, we’re expecting a foot of snow overnight, so I’ve readied supplies for glühwein, my hot booze of choice this winter. I was on a bourbon-spiked cider kick last year, but now I’m all about recreating my Oma’s recipe for warm spiced red wine: Dissolve a couple spoonfuls of sugar in a cup of water, add copious glugs of inexpensive red wine (hello Carlo Rossi my old friend), then simmer it with a cheesecloth containing two whole cinnamon sticks, a dozen or so whole cloves, and some lemon slices. So easy, so very cozy. [Kate Bernot]
