Traditional Swedish Glögg

This warm and cozy glögg recipe will warm you up from the inside out. If you’ve never celebrated the holiday season with Swedish glögg, it’s time to remedy that ASAP!

What Is Glögg?

Glögg is Swedish infused wine. Usually served during the holiday season, it’s similar to mulled wine — but it’s not quite the same thing (glögg is a bit more involved). Traditionally, the drink is set on fire so the sugar granules completely dissolve.

Glögg Ingredients

These are the ingredients you’ll need to make this traditional Swedish glögg recipe:

· Alcohol: This big batch Swedish glögg recipe is quite boozy. It calls for a combination of port wine (don’t throw away the bottles!), bourbon whiskey, and white rum.
· Spices: The glögg gets its warm and cozy flavor from cloves, a cinnamon stick, and cardamom pods. A strip of orange peel lends fruity flavor.
· Sugar: Sweeten things up with ¾ cup white sugar.
· Raisins and almonds: Raisins and almonds lend subtle, yet welcome, flavor.

Tip: Use an ordinary port wine for this recipe, because the strong-flavored spices and other ingredients will overwhelm an expensive wine.


How to Make Glögg

Making Swedish glögg for the first time can be intimidating, but it’s actually not that hard (you just need a great recipe). You’ll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here’s a brief overview of what you can expect:

1. Heat the port wine. Add bourbon and rum, making sure the alcohol is warm but not simmering.
2. Secure the spices and orange peel strip in a cheesecloth square tied with twine.
3. Carefully light the alcohol with a long-handled match and let burn for one minute.
4. Place the lid on the pot to extinguish the flames. Let cool for 10 minutes.
5. Add the bundled spices and let cool to room temperature.
6. Strain and serve, garnishing with the reserved raisins and almonds.

“Just like what my grandfather used to make,” says Write from the Heart. “Warms the heart and the blue flames make a spectacular show that will break the ice at even the stiffest of gatherings. Sometimes I use rum instead of whiskey. Can adapt this to be non-alcoholic: one liter apple juice, one liter cranberry juice, one lemon sliced.”

“I grew up in Sweden and still have family there and visit on a regular basis,” according to mitoboru. “I have had and made my fair share of glögg, including my grandmother’s recipe. This is by far the best one to date.”

“Growing up with a Swedish family, this was a staple of Christmas,” says Erinammo. “The smell is so sweet and wonderful. This is exactly how my father makes it. Be prepared though for the kick and don’t expect to drink too much!”
