At least according to my mom and her Bavarian friends, it will.
I’ve been doing battle with a nasty cold this week (and I’m losing). After complaining to my mother that I sound like the understudy for Selma Bouvier, she reminded me that what I really need is a big mug of Glühwein (yet another use for Two-Buck Chuck). When my folks were living in Germany, she learned a secret from the Bavarians. When you’ve got a cold, you’re supposed to drink as much Glühwein “as you dare” (that’s my favorite part), take a HOT shower, and get into bed. And then magic happens . . . you’re cured!
Hot, spiced wine is enjoyed all around the world. If you’re curious about the different styles and variations (and you’d like my recipe), click ☛ here ☚ .
Has anyone else ever heard of this magical German panacea?
I’m putting the Glühwein Cure to a test tonight . . . I have nothing to lose except this cold.
