There is many names for this mulled wine, spiced wine, Glühwein￼… The story about Glühwein goes back to the 15th century. And in Sweden we have proof that they drank glögg 1609. And in December it’s a must to drink some glögg. Glögg is the Swedish name for it. ￼Here is one way to do it!
- 1 bottle of dry red wine
- 1,5 dl Sugar (0,6 cup)
- 1 dl Raisins (0,4 cup)
- 1,5 bitter orange peel
- 0,5 teaspoon cardamom seeds
- 1 piece of dried ginger
- 6 whole cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick￼
- 1,5 dl vodka (0,6 cup)
- Get a clean jar with a good tight lid.
- Add cloves, cinnamon, dried ginger, raisins, cardamon seeds and bitter orange peel. Pour over the vodka, and make sure everything is covered. Close the lid and leave for 3 to 5 days. ￼￼￼ shake it every day.
- Strain it over a cooking pot. And add the wine￼￼￼ and half of the sugar￼. Let it simmer not boil until all the sugar is dissolved. Try it and add more sugar if needed.
- When it’s done drink it or keep it in a closed bottle in the fridge.
