Crafty Christmas: Guestpost – Mareike from monkey loves robot.

Hey there!


For this „Crafty Christmas“ I invited some lovely bloggers (from Germany) to share cute DIY ideas or recipes or even stories with you. Today I would like to introduce you to the lovely Mareike from monkey loves robot. I love reading her blog because a) she has the cutest family b) she’s a creative and c) cooking/baking person like me. 

Mareike was kind enough to share a recipe with us:


Hot Spiced Wine

You’ll need:

750 ml red wine (those who don’t like alcohol or want their kids to have a sip too, are free to use applejuice or fruit tea)
50 ml rum
20 ml amaretto
7 cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 oranges (cut in slices)
the cest of 1/2 lemon
a little vanilla for the taste

First, cook all the ingredients together and then let them rest for a while.

Filter all the spicery and fill your delicious wine in bottles. This will be a perfect christmas gift, don’t you think?



Thank you Mareike, for this delicious recipe. I still need a few gifts for my coworkers and this wine might be the perfect match!

  1. When I lived in Spain, my roommate was from Germany. I spent Christmas with his family in 1999. I really liked the gluewein, but I can never remember what it is called. Thank you for giving me back that word and for the trip down memory lane!
