Little Bites of Strasbourg

Strasbourg's Christmas market (or the Christkindelsmärik) started on Saturday, and I just can't keep myself away.

The mulled wine is delicious! They don't make it too sweet, and there's a strong anise flavor, which isn't my favorite flavor, but surprisingly works really well with the wine. The last cup I had had fresh orange and lemon slices floating in it, which made it seem like a warm sangria!
