Another recipe from our Executive Chef .. also another winter warmer and really really easy to make .. instead of cognac, I have also thrown in other liquors which are normally sweet ...


12 bottle red wine (Beaujolais)
1.2 liter water
0,3 liter cognac
7 pieces whole cinnamon
8 pieces of whole lemon sliced
5 pieces cardamom
4 pieces cloves
300gram sugar

This is a special drink you serve during Christmas in Switzerland and Germany and is available at the ski slopes around those countries, the drink will be served in a cafe latte glass with a small piece of cinnamon and a piece of sliced lemon.

Add all ingredients in a suitable pot and heat up the wine. Simmer for 5 mins. and switch off the heat. Then cover the pot with a lid and keep it aside for 30 mins. DO NOT remove the lid.

Once the 30 min.are over, remove the lid and heat up the wine, till you reach nearly the boiling point before it becomes to boil strain it through a strainer.

To serve:Add one thin slice of lemon and 1-2 pieces of cinnamon stick into the glass and pour the wine over, serve it immediately.
