Helena’s Holiday Glogg - Mulled Wine

This glogg is a great party starter or a nice dessert beverage that will make you warm inside on a cold day. The aroma in the air will give an ambiance of holiday celebration.

10-12 Servings

2 Cups Water

1 Orange

6 Whole Cloves

1 Cinnamon stick

10 Cardamon Pods

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Bottle Red Wine, Bordeaux Style

1 Cup Vodka (optional

1/4 Cup Raisins (optional)

1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds or Blanched and Peeled Whole Almonds

1. Peel orange by hand or with a peering knife so you get a few big pieces of the peel.

2. Mix water, sugar, spices and orange peel in a pot. Bring to a boil, take down heat and let simmer until the spiced syrup is reduced to half. Let it sit for a few hours or over night.

3. Mix red wine, spiced syrup and vodka in a pot. Heat up without boiling; the alcohol will dissipate if you bring the glogg to the boiling point.

4. The glogg should be served warm but not hot.

5. Pour into small cups, espresso size with a tea spoon on the plate.

6. Serve with raisins and almonds on the side for your guests to spoon into their glogg.

Enjoy with ginger bread snaps, a chocolate dessert or just as it is.
