Dutch mulled wine trivia

Bisschopswijn translate to Bishop wine. It originates from the 18th century when it was called Bischof or Kardinal. In the 14th century the Roman made spiced wine, but that was used cold. Spices, honey and other products were used to spice it. It is said it was done to cover up for bad wine! Back then it was called Ypocras or Hipocras.
Main difference between the Dutch Bisschopswijn and German Gluhwein is that the Dutch use oranges and the Germans use lemons in their mulled wine. 

Tip: if you would like to keep the alcohol in the wine, don't let the temperature get over 78C. A non-alcohol wine can be used instead of the red wine.
