Shanghai | Mulled Wine Season is coming! 热红酒季来啦!

Truly, nothing says Christmas like mulled wine.  As you probably know, this is red wine that is spiced and infused with ingredients (usually with a simple but enticing blend of cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg, crystalized ginger and dried orange peel ) and then heated. There are a few variations on this drink, but they’ve usually got at least two things in common; they’re made of wine, and they’re delicious.

说真的,没有什么能比热葡萄酒更能代表圣诞节了。热红酒,即是将红葡萄酒加入香料和配料(通常是简单但诱人的肉桂棒、丁香、肉豆蔻、糖姜、陈皮),然后加热。这款饮品偶尔会有一些变化,但它们通常至少有两个共同点:热红酒是由葡萄酒制成的,而且味道鲜美。

But not only does it taste great; mulled wine also has a pretty interesting, international history. Like so many good things, it is thought to originate in Italy. There are records of red wine being warmed and seasoned with spice in Rome as far back as the 2nd Century. From there it made it’s way to what is now the U.K., where it is still a massively popular holiday tipple and one of the countries most associated with mulled wine.

 

它不仅味道好极了,还具有相当有趣的国际历史。热红酒被认为起源于意大利,早在公元2世纪时的罗马就有红葡萄酒被加温和调味的记录。演变至今,在英国,热红酒仍然是最受欢迎的节日饮品,同时也是与热红酒关系最密切的国家之一。

 

Wondering why you’ve seen a British drink at so many German Christmas markets? Well, it’s popular there too, where it’s known as gluhwein. It’s enjoyed all over Europe, in fact, and even as far afield as Chile (where it’s known as both candola and vino navega’o)… and now, Shanghai!

你可能也想了解为什么在很多德国圣诞市集上看到这款英国人的饮品?嗯,热红酒在德国也很受欢迎,在那里它被称为gluhwein。事实上,它在整个欧洲都很受欢迎,甚至远在智利(在那里它被称为candola和vino navega’o)…现在,上海也将火爆起来啦!
