Have your heard mulled wine referred to by the name "whiskey?"

I was looking at an Icelandic book of recipes from 1858 that is largely based on Danish cookbooks and in it there's a recipe for "whiskey" which is made from tea, sugar, lemonjuice and white wine. This isn't terribly similar to glühwein or glögg, but not entirely dissimilar. My question is, does anyone know why this is referred to as "whiskey" in the recipe book? Has anyone heard any kind of European mulled wine referred to by that name? Or know another name for mixed wine and tea drinks? I've put the recipe inside. [more inside]

help me keep my cheap wine from becoming expensive vinegar

How should I store my wine? Considering that I almost never buy wine that costs more than 10 or 20 dollars, I don't think it's worth it for me to buy some fancy wine refrigerator that costs hundreds of dollars, but the temperature in my living room ranges from 68F to 90F (20C to 32C) and the insides of the closets are even hotter.
