Picked up a bottle of Christengel Glühwein at Aldi last week and drinking it tonight. It's a German mulled wine with spices that is served warm. Not bad, especially for $5 a bottle.

I saw it in the store yesterday and wondered what it was.

Drank the shit out of it when I lived in Germany from 86-88. During the winter, vendors were on the corner selling it in styrofoam cups. That stuff woud really warm you from the inside out.

I had a bottle from Trader Joes a few years ago

It's fucking horrific

Had it when I was stationed in Germany. Went to the Christmas market in Nuremberg and drank gluwein while listening to a live Christmas music in the snow. Was a memory I will never forget.

This. If you've ever thrown up in your mouth, that is exactly what it tastes like. The locals love it. It's also popular in the Alsace region in France.

Quite a few of my colleagues are Germans here temporarily and I've heard many stories of Gluhwein being a tradition while at the Christmas markets.

I've had it at Christmas parties before, it's pretty good.

just a little tip put a little rum in it this will be very nice

also heat it up put a spoon of honey in with the rum and enjoy

Next to hot buttered Rums made with Lemon Hart 151, one of my favorite mixed winter drinks.

Push the mulled wine, we're stuck with it!

Hell yeah, that shit's badass! You can make your own but that's pretty cheap.
