Compiled by The Klutz in the Kitchen
It’s a cold day so the Klutz decided to find a recipe from an area of the global village where people really know how to stave of the winter chill. Chest puffed out with pride and happiness he has found this traditional Scandinavian hot punch for the cold winter months! It is the Scandinavian equivalent of Glühwein and should be treated with healthy respect if one is going to opperate any heavy machinery of any sort.
Glögg combines a selection of warm spices and dried fruit with Vodka, Red Wine and Port, all gently simmered to produce a wonderfully complex and tasty variation on mulled wine. Quantities can be adapted depending on how much you’re making but the below recipe will make a batch of about 1.5 litres. Recipe found of the Top’s Website.
