Mulled wine – glögg


As days are getting longer here
Inviting by mý fireplace
With music that will please my ear
The spicy wine my chill will chase
~~~
My favorite recipe for glögg (Swedish mulled wine) is as follows
1 bottle of red wine,
cheap but with some body – I prefer Spanish
10 cl vodka (or white rum for variation)
10 g whole cinnamon (=4-5 pieces)
1 1/2 g cloves (about 20)
A small piece dried ginger
2 g seed of cardemom
(if you take pods increase slightly)
A piece of dried bitter orange-peel (pomerans)

3 dl white sugar (I usually take a little less)
1 tsp vanilla-sugar
raisin and almonds to serve

Crush the seed of cardemom in a mortar, break the cinnamon sticks. Put the spices in a jar and add the liqour. Let stand over night and the filter through for instance a coffee filter. Add the liqour to the wine and add sugar and vanilla-sugar. Heat it carefully and serve in small cups with raisins and almonds.

I usually make a bigger batch of spicy liquor and then mix the glögg right before serving.

  1. I was introduced to Glogg at the Christmas fairs in Frankfurt and I still love it now on a cold and wintry evening over Christmas – standing with a bag of hot chestnuts as well 🙂

  3. Wow! Whay yumness! May I post your recipe on my blog – while giving you full credit for it. I would post a link back to your site here. This sounds wonderful. 🙂

  4. Oh, my gosh. My uncle makes glogg but I only had a small taste once as a kid. I thought it was awful. Haha. I’ll keep your recipe handy for when I get brave enough to try making some myself.
