Winter is here and there’s no better time to brew up a batch of Glögg. This mulled wine drink is native to Nordic countries and perfect for sipping by the fire on those long, snowy winter evenings.
Glögg is a hot, spiced, red wine drink. Mulled wines are popular in Europe and this version should not be confused with gluhwein – each region’s version of mulled wine has something unique about it. Glögg uses port, can include infused spirits like vodka or bitters, and has more of an orange flavor. It is far less fruit-filled and instead relies on almonds and raisins for its unique flavor. You can learn to make Glögg at home, easily, and impress your guests with your Nordic take on holiday drinks.
