Personal Notes:
This is the perfect drink for "after ski" or after walking in the winter woods. It is the drink that keeps shopper warm at Christmas Marts all over Germany. It always reminds me of our Army days and Christkindlesmart in Nurnburg.

One recipe suggested cooking the first three ingredients until the sugar melts and then adding the wine. I just dissolve the sugar in part of the wine. I never really measure, but you get the idea. It is a wonderfully warming drink on a cold night.
