Glühwein (Hot wine)

Typical German drink for the winter and even more for Christmas!


1 Liter of Red wine
1 Lemon
3 Cloves
2 Cinnamon sticks
Sugar or honey (what you prefer to make it sweeter)

Cut the lemon and put it with the wine, the cloves and the cinnamon sticks in a pot and let it get heat without boiling! Let it settle for an hour, strain it and before serve it, heat it again and add some sugar or honey (what you prefer)

Das ist alles!

Castilian Soup

As the winter is starting, here you have a typical spanish soup to fight the cold weather.

1 Bread
Sweet paprika
Serrano  ham (if it is possible)
Chicken cube
Olive oil
2 Eggs (if you want)

Keep the bread of the day before so it becomes stale. Cut it into small pieces.
Put 2 or 3 garlic’s heads in a pan with a bit of oil (a tablespoon), the ham and a bit of paprika. When the garlic is ready put everything in a pot with water and a chicken cube and let it boil. When it has been boiling for 10 minutes put the bread inside, turn it off and cover it.

The soup is ready, if you want to add eggs, before serve it boilt the soup and when it's boiling add the eggs and turn it off.
Enjoy it!
