RED CHRISTMAS GLÖGG

Glögg is a Scandinavian Christmas drink made of red or white wine, heated up with sugar & spices.
A bit like mulled wine. As we also have a bit of Swedish in vonblum and love this Christmas custom, we will get our batch ready for Christmas eve and thought you might enjoy it as well!
  • one or two bottles of red wine (as preferred)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 dozen cloves
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 dozens almonds
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • orange peel
  • a touch of brandy

Pour the red wine in a stainless steel pot.
Add the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, raisins, nutmeg, almonds and orange peel, stirring until all the ingredients are mixed together and the sugar is diluted.
Warm gently, stirring occasionally, but do not boil, otherwise the alcohol will evaporate. Add a touch of brandy for a greater aroma and garnish it with more orange peel or cinnamon. The glögg is ready!
Pour it in seasonal Christmas cups or mugs and make sure there are spices in every cup, they will keep the aroma longer while you are seeping the tasty drink. Be sure that the glögg it is served steaming hot
9 days until Christmas eve
