"Bisschopswijn, meaning 'bishop's wine,' is the Dutch version of the German Gluehwein, a hot drink for snowy holidays that makes you glow inside. Don't drink this if you have to drive tonight! Each household has its own variety; this is the one my Dutch neighbors used to make when I was a kid in Amsterdam for Christmas and New Year's Eve."

This recipe is a favourite in our family for cold days and tradtionnal drunk on new years eve. One advice: use a stick of cinnamon, instead of groud cinnamon: it's easy to remove and the smell...

We had this on Sinterklaas Day, and really enjoyed it (my husband is dutch). We used a cheap burgandy - great use for cheap wine! :)

Quite delicious. The wine was a lot stronger than I expected-went straight to my head! Great addition at Christmas.

Great for "2 buck chuck". Remove orange after 30 minutes or the wine will turn bitter.

Really good, warm and sweet!

It was very good! Very tasty, and easy to make. Each recipe does make about 8 servings, and my guests liked it too.

Very good, even with 2 buck chuck...Heated for 20 minutes, used 2 cinnamon sticks...tasted like apple cider with a hint of red wine!

Yes, this would be very strong the way it is. I am going to make it today, but will put in 1/2 as much Apple Juice as wine. (1 1/2 C ?)

Wonderful! Had this atop a mountain in Switzerland...it's the perfect warmer!
