The only place the Internet indicates we can find this is the Christmas Market, which has ended for the season. I've called a few places but haven't found anyone who currently has this beverage on their list. Will be there the 28th - 30th, and if anyone could point us at a place where we could find a glass of Gluhwein, mulled wine, Glogg (insert appropriate diacriticals where needed,) would be most appreciative.

Google says Pourhouse, The Union, Discover Wines (daily samples all this month), Café Barney (?), possibly Bimini's.

Definitely make your own. I do this for my wife and I all winter long:

Cut an orange into 4 wedges. Juice it into a pot, toss in the peels.
Add 1.5 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and whole cloves
Add a tablespoon of brown sugar
Pour 1L of red wine into the juice and spices (I use Nicolas Laloux - a nice cheap red wine)
Add a splash of water
Heat to just before boiling
Strain and serve. (I pour from the pot through a sieve straight into a mug)

Takes 15 minutes... easy to do while you prepare something else, and is a nice way to elevate cheap wine.
