I am going to invite over a group of friends this Friday night for Swedish Glögg and hot appetizers. I love how cooking Glögg makes my whole house smell like Christmas! Glögg (aka Mulled Wine) is a beverage made with red wine, (either alcoholic or non-alcoholic) which is cooked with various spices and served either hot or warm.
Hot Cocktails: Glögg
Pour the entire jug of Burgundy wine in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Place mulling spices in a large mesh tea ball or spice bag (available at Whole Foods) and drop into wine. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Serve in mugs with a cinnamon stick.
I like to transfer the Glogg to a crockpot next to a stack of coffee cups and a ladle so guests can serve themselves. Trust me, this recipe is a winner!
