A typical “Glühwein” recipe asks for red wine (white wine is possible too), water, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, and orange slices. I prefer honey instead of plain sugar. Although I never tried it, I think maple syrup would be another flavorful alternative. To further spice up the drink, a piece of ginger may be added. “Glühwein” is not an instant drink. “Glühwein” requires time to both be prepared and be enjoyed.
Looking for something sweeter and stronger than “Glühwein?” Try a mug of “Feuerzangenbowle” —the more sugary and rum-enhanced version of mulled wine.
