This traditional winter beverage may be a staple in Nordic countries (Norway’s glögg and Germany’s glühwein) but here, we’re all for a more simplified version that requires just a touch less effort. Enter a clever twist, featuring a rather special vessel, that just may inspire you to do a little experimenting of your own. Take a peek at our video below!


  • one bottle (750ml) of fruity, red wine (we recommend a Cabernet or Merlot)
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 orange, juiced and zested
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 3 star anise
  • 3 short cinnamon sticks, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 orange, sliced


Pour the wine into the slow cooker and gently stir in the honey. Pour in the orange juice and zest and stir together. Add in the spices and top the blend with the orange slices. Cover and cook for about 1 hour on a low setting. Once it’s finished, let it cool for a bit before serving!
