Instant Pot Glühwein (Mulled Wine)

The coziest of holiday drinks, mulled wine is super easy to make in an Instant Pot or on the stovetop and makes for a perfectly spiced, warm Christmas drink!

Have you ever had glühwein? If you’ve hung around with any Germans around the holidays, I bet you have. And if you hang around with Nordic folk, you may have heard it called glögg.

And if neither of those rings a bell, I’m sure you’ve heard of mulled wine.

It’s probably my favorite part about Christkindlmarkt. When I lived in Illinois, I used to go to the one in Chicago every year and my first stop was always to get glühwein. Followed immediately by bratwurst, stuffed pretzels and marzipan candy.

The scent of mulled wine is so damn comforting. There’s something about this particular combination of spices being warmed with red wine that just makes everything cozy. The aroma fills the house and becomes this amazing natural air freshener that requires no plugins or chemicals. Sure, it fades eventually, but that just means you’ll need to make more mulled wine. OH DARN. WHATEVER SHALL WE DO.

I always like to make things from scratch, I also like to make things easier when I can. This is where a spice blend from a local farm comes in super handy! I highly recommend having a tin of mulling spices on hand so that you can throw together a batch of mulled wine at a moment’s notice when guests stop by.

I know we live in a time now when people stopping by unexpectedly causes the urge to turn off all the lights and hide in the closet until they leave, but let’s shove that deep down and welcome people into our homes this holiday season, shall we?!

This batch was made with a tablespoon of fresh mulling spices from in Massachusetts. We’ve gotten spices from them before at their stall at the Boston Public Market , and they’re absolutely delightful. Their mulling spices are no exception.

Don’t have a local vendor nearby? Your grocery store will likely have something in the coffee/tea aisle, so mosey over there and give it a look.

Wait… have I seriously not mentioned anything about the fact that this is made in an yet?! Good grief, Charlie Brown.

So, this is my first Instant Pot recipe on the blog because a friend was kind enough to gift Bill and I with one at our wedding shower/housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I’ve been mulling over what recipe to post first and decided this was perfect. No muss, no fuss, and if you don’t have an Instant Pot this is just as easy to make on the stove top.

I’m a big fan of drinking glühwein mit Schuss, which means that I add another liquor to the mix. My personal favorite is brandy, but you could experiment with your favorite rum as well. When serving, I like to add a couple orange slices to mine and call it a day, but you can add cinnamon sticks, fresh cranberries, star anise, apple slices… really, whatever you want.

Also, quick note: Those apple slices that were in the pot with everything? They become these ridiculously delicious boozy apple slices. I recommend notdiscarding those.
