Need a winter pick-me-up, but live too far south for the famous glogg at Simon's Tavern? Hyde Park's Park 52 may have the remedy. Sommelier Alain Njike has created a "Glow Wine" (based on the traditional German drink, Gluhwein): a blend of wines, spices and seasonal fruit, warmed up for your imbibing pleasure.
At the high price of $15, or 36 packets of Swiss Miss, it's not an everyday indulgence. But with the days not getting any warmer, it's worth a sip.
