Mulled wine is a popular, traditional drink enjoyed throughout Europe. And this Swedish glogg recipe is Scandinavia's version. Super easy-to-make, in just minutes you could be enjoying a delicious glass of mulled wine or cider any time of the year not just at Christmas. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
Note: Traditionally this would be made with white cardamom pods which are basically the green pods that have been dyed. If you have these, use them; if not, just use green as I tend to do.
Ingredients: (makes about 6 tablespoons)
15 white cardamom pods (green otherwise)
3 inch piece cinnamon
1 tbsp juniper seeds
1 tbsp fennel seeds
2 tsp allspices berries
1 tsp whole cloves
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
That's it! Super simple. (See below for how to use)
Now you've made the spice blend, why not try the Swedish traditional wine?
Note: I suggest 2 tablespoons of the mix per bottle of wine. The recipe above makes 6 tablespoons which is enough for 3 bottles of wine. If you need more, just double or treble the amount of ingredients used.
1 bottle red wine (750ml)
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
¼ cup raisins
Zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp glogg spices
Optional vodka (as much or as little as you like)
Serve and enjoy!
