Glögg is a Scandinavian Christmas drink.  The recipes vary widely, but all of them use either red wine or port as a base with the addition of mulling spices, sugar and usually other liquors such as brandy or vodka.  It's great to get you through the cold winter season! 

Step 1: What you Need

For this version of Glögg, you will need the following:

2 bottles of tawny port (the cheap stuff is fine)
half liter of brandy
mulling spices: cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves
1 orange peel
10 sugar cubes
raisins
slivered almonds

1 bottle each of:<br><br>Madeira<br>Tawney port<br>Dry Sherry<br>1/2 bottle dry red wine<br><br>4 oz brandy<br>8 oz sugar cubes (lit aflame for a few seconds)<br>2-3 cinnamon sticks<br>1 cup raisins <br>1 cup almonds<br>12 cardamon seeds ( removed from pods)<br>12 whole cloves<br><br>then follow the above directions as stated. This is the recipe that's been handed down for many generations in my family.
<p>Where would you get premixed mulling spices (in the USA)?</p>
Thank you.

For our family glogg recipe we like to mull the spices with just about an inch of the port - this way you can simmer it and really get the spices integrated without worrying about boiling off all that lovely alcohol! Then we add the rest of the port (plus whiskey) and about 20 steps later - yum! :)
