Glogg comes from an old word meaning burning ember. You'll feel the heat when you serve this Swedish mulled wine over the Christmas holidays!
Don't use an expensive port for this recipe, because the strong-flavoured spices and other ingredients will overwhelm the flavour.
This is a must during the winter holidays in our house. I have been to some large Danish parties where they use gallon jugs of Sangria with the addition of the other alcohol so I may try that. You can also serve raisins and dried cranberries soaked in dark rum on the side along with the slivered almonds. A truly wonderful drink that will get a lot of comments from those who may not be familiar with it. A definite party maker!!! Skoal! - 25 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Growing up with a Swedish family this was a staple of Christmas, 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! - 22 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Winter and freezing cold outside, but a glass of this Swedish Glogg made a whole lot of warmth inside. - 04 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
