Another shamelessly copied recipe from the official Elder Scrolls Cookbook (more precisely: Bethesda’s™ iconic Skyrim computer game from 2011). Since winter kicks our asses hard these days, this recipe seemed like a perfect match. Quote from the book: 

“Many Imperials have found Skyrim’s climate difficult to bear, so when one enterprising garrison cook whipped up this hot drink to help ward off the northern chill, it quickly gained popularity across the region and beyond. It makes use of a few Imperial ingredients that must be imported, but its warming qualities are well worth the extra expense.”




Ingredients (for 2):

600 ml white wine
1 tsp. imperial seasoning*
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp. sugar (IMHO, better 1.5)

How to make it:

Combine all ingredients in a pot over medium heat. Bring the wine up to just under a simmer, so it is steaming but not bubbling.

Keep it there for around 10 minutes to allow the flavors to become friends, then strain into mugs.

* Made from:
3 tsp. dried marjoram, 3 tsp. dried savory, 1 tsp. crushed coriander seeds, ¼ tsp. white pepper
