3 cardamom pods
750ml red wine
1 orange, sliced
2,5ml allspice berries
2,5ml whole cloves
2 star anise
2 cinnamon quills/sticks
62ml brown sugar

Bruise the cardamom pods by placing them on a work surface. Place a saucepan on top and press down onto it to crack the pods.
Add the pods, wine, orange, allspice, cloves, star anise and cinnamon to a saucepan set over medium heat.
Heat the mixture but do not allow it to boil – you want the wine warm to the point before boiling.
Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
Allow the wine and spices to sit for 30 minutes at room temperature so that it can infuse.
Strain the Glühwein and serve warm with fresh orange slices.
