#18 Advent - Glühwein Rezept

Continuing on with our boozy Christmas todays Advent gift is a recipe for Glühwein. Glühwein literally translates as 'Glow Wine' from German. It's a warm, delicious, spicy cup of Christmas coziness.

In celebration of this momentous holiday, I thought I'd share a great recipe with you: Sriracha Deviled Eggs.

After cooling and peeling the eggs, slice in half lengthwise, and place the hardened yolks into a bowl. Add a little mayonnaise and Sriracha and stir up...
