Authentic Swedish Glugg to Help You Survive the Holidays

Nothing says the holidays quite like cold weather and a ton of time with the family. What is the best way to make the most of both? How about glugg aka glögg aka yummy, warm, festive wine! It is a winter staple in Sweden and given the intensity of Swedish winters, they may be on to something.

Here’s a dead-simple recipe for glugg to make this holiday season more enjoyable for everyone:

1 bottle of white wine

1 cup of almond liquor

3/4 cup of sugar

2 sticks of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of cardamom seeds

A few slices of fresh ginger

Orange zest

Add these ingredients (wine first) in a pot over medium/low heat for 15 minutes and that’s it! Now you can celebrate the holidays like a true Scandinavian.
