Gløgg is a warm holiday drink that not only warms the body but is very tasty too. If you are having a gathering this holiday season, prepare this and your guests will love it. In fact, even if you aren't having a gathering, prepare it; you'll be glad you did. Enjoy!
Step 1: Gather everything you will need
- Crock pot or any other pot you can use to simmer the Gløgg
- Whole cloves (one tablespoon)
- Port wine (about a cup)
- A bottle of red wine
- An orange, you will use the peel for zest
- Raw almonds (blanched or whole) (about a cup)
- Cinnamon sticks
- Golden raisins (about a cup)
- White sugar
Step 2: Pop open the cork and add the wine (or twist off, if that is how you roll)
If you are using a pot, pour the entire bottle into the pot. Make sure there is enough in the pot to accommodate two bottles of wine. You won't be including two bottles but you will ensure that you have enough room in your pot.
Putting the wine in before everything else allows it to breathe while you are preparing the other things to go in to the Gløgg.
I am by no means a wine snob so I think even a twist off variety of red wine would be OK for this recipe. I have never tried it but if you do let me know what it tastes like.
