About this recipe: Bisschopswijn, meaning 'bishop's wine', is the Dutch version of the German 'Gluehwein', a hot drink for snowy holidays that makes you glow inside. Don't drink this if you have to drive tonight! When I was a kid in Amsterdam, this is the one my Dutch neighbors used to make for Christmas and New Year's Eve.
