At some point, usually between the sixth and eighth cup of your fifth visit to the Christmas market with your colleagues, even the biggest mulled wine fan stares empty-eyed into his tankard and has the sweet Christmas drink. Alternatives are needed. For gin lovers, the 2022 glow gin is the perfect choice. Essentially, it differs from mulled wine in only one point: instead of wine, clove, star anise, cinnamon and organs refine it
Bad hangover? Rather less. This glow gin has just 17 percent alcohol by volume. Pleasure drinkers should therefore wake up without a pounding head. If the gin is too strong for you, you can also mix it with fruit juice. The manufacturer recommends a mixture of two-thirds mulled wine and one-third juice. Apple juice is a good choice. Beautiful: According to its own statement, "Böser Kater" supports cat protection with every bottle you buy.
With 15 percent by volume, the glow gin from V-Sinne is a little more frugal. The distillery in the Black Forest has set itself the task of bringing its homeland to the tongues of all people with all their senses. In the Christmas season, this is possible with the "Glüh-Gin
Attention: The Winter Wonderland Christmas gin is not actually a glow gin. With 42 percent by volume, it is only conditionally suitable for unmixed tasting.

They usually do their mischief at "casual" gatherings of middle-aged people who invite people to so-called "tastings" (in German: drinking) in lovingly furnished apartments.
The gin connoisseur usually knows everything about gin and likes to refine his own with unpronounceable tonic waters that can only be bought on the internet (or in a very specific supermarket in Thailand). With wide eyes, he looks hopefully at the other guests as they sip his spiced gin and tonic creations. Of course he doesn't skimp on the question of how it tastes and satisfaction graces his face when it actually does that to the ignorant.
Ginsanity is what they call it. If all this is too complicated for you, simply grab a bottle of glow gin from the manufacturer of the same name. But you don't want to drink it neat. Because it is 40% by volume, two shots of apple juice should refine it.
The preparation of this "essence" of the glow gin is even easier. According to the manufacturer, you simply have to mix the gin with water in a 1:1 ratio and heat it up, and the glow gin is ready. In addition to gin and apple juice, the mixture also contains cinnamon and ginger. Cheers.
