a german traditional treat this time
here's a good reason to like winter
Glühwein roughly translates to Glow Wine and is hot, spiced red wine,
sold in outdoor stalls in christmas fares, or brewed at home
consists of red wine, water, brown sugar, lemon and cloves
oh, and it's yummy
all made with Blender, SimPE 0.48, PSP and UV-Mapper

The Info

Faces: 1424 (eep)
Find it in General/Party
Provides a small amount of energy, fun and comfort, depletes bladder.
Catalog entries and custom pie menu for English, Dutch and, of course, German (courtesy of the amazing besen), everyone else gets English too

Recolorable. You're free to fiddle with it.
Should work in all versions of the game.

I think I'll go make myself a cup right now

this Download is wonderful. I live in Austria and my parents always drink Glühwein when it is December. And now my Sims can this too.

PS: I am 12 Jears old and my English is not good. I think i must go learn English :sprint:

That's interesting..thanks for sharing this custom with the rest of us who are not Germanic/Austrian/Swiss. :nod: Is it similar to mulled wine the Brits drink?

If I'm not mistaking this for something else, we have it in Turkey too! (It's not Turkish tradition but more of a cold weather trend) Hot red wine with apple peels, cloves, cinnamon and some other stuff I can't quite remember. Even if it's not the same, that's what my simmies will be drinking for me It's yummy. I wish someone would make me some My simmies will make me verry jealous now.
And thank you Lethe_s, this will add some spice to my coffee hating sims' life

This is great! But could you tell us How to make it so we can drink it while watching our sims drink it! LOL!! Sounds wounderful!!

Now I'm not looking for absolution. Forgiveness for the things I do. But before you come to any conclusions. Try walking in my shoes. You'll stumble in my footsteps.

Hey, that's so cool! Love Gühwein :D
To the recipe:
You can also put some nuts (like starlightgirl911 said) in it and a bit of rum. It's spices the drink up a bit :D. I have also seen that some make a bit crem over it...
So yummy. Now we need some Gingerbread and Lebkuchen for our Sims to eat ^^

Some flowers bloom only in the imagination.
