A Toast to Saint Nicholas

Toast Saint Nicholas tonight with a glass of warm mulled wine,or "Bisschopswijn." It's easy to make and a pleasure to drink. For 2 to 3 servings you will need:

1 liter of wine
An orange
A lemon
20 cloves
2-3 tablespoons of sugar
1 or 2 cinnamon sticks

To make the mulled wine, pour a bottle of wine into a big pot. Take one orange and one lemon and stick ten whole cloves in each. Add them to the wine, along with a cinnamon stick or two and a few tablespoons of sugar. Bring the wine to a gentle boil, then lower the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for about an hour. Serve in a heat-proof mug or glass.

Happy Feast Day everyone!
