    I'm having an Apres first semester party for myself and classmates from the Swedish Institute of Massage Therapy.

    I want to surprise everyone with some Swedish Glogg!

    Please forward any recipes or links you may know of.

    Much appreciated!

    I love glo"gg! (Sorry, don't have the Swedish keyboard here!)

    I usually use a bottle of the glogg starter, and add red wine, but here is a recipe that looks quite close to what I've made before (or helped make).

    Glogg - Swedish
    Ingredients:

    * 1 cup blanched Almond
    * 12 Cardamom seeds , peeled
    * 12 whole Cloves
    * 6 Cinnamon sticks
    * Peel of 1 Orange

    * 1 bottle Brandy (or Aquavit)
    * 1 cup Sugar cubes, crushed

    Mixing instructions:

    Put cardamon seeds, cinnamon, cloves and orange parts in nylon bag and tie top. In large saucepan put bag, half bottle of the wine, and the raisins. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add remaining wine and the almond, heat through. In another saucepan warm about 1/3 of the brandy (or aquavit), pour in sugar and light with match to flame. When sugar has melted, pour in the remainder of brandy. If necessary extinguish flame with cover lid. Add sugar mixture to wine mixture. Pour in cups with raisins and almonds in each serving. Serve in irish coffee cup. A hot cup of glogg is the Scandinavian way of offering a warm welcome to a friend on a wintery evening.

    Here's a video on how to make it.

    or try this:

    SERVES 8 (change servings and units)
    Ingredients
    1 (750 ml) bottle dry red wine
    1 cup orange juice
    1 orange, zest of, cut into chunks
    2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
    10 whole cloves, lightly crushed
    10 whole cardamom pods, lightly crushed
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/2 cup sliced candied ginger
    1/2 cup blanched almond, toasted
    1 (750 ml) bottle port wine
    2 cups brandy
    1/2 cup sugar

    Directions
    1. Place wine, orange juice, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, cranberries, ginger and almonds in a large saucepan and cook gently 1/2 hour.
    2. Add the port and heat thoroughly but do not boil. If mixture comes to the boil the alcohol will evaporate.
    3. Combine sugar with 1/2 cup of the brandy in a large saucepan. Warm it gently to dissolve the sugar. Add mixture to the wine.

    Glogg? The ingredients sound delicious but maybe they ought to rethink the name.

    Don't knock it...it's perfect onomatopoeia.


    Somehow the phrase "Let's all have a round of Glogg" doesn't do it for me.

    Hey Guys

    Just wanted to thank you for your great recipes and feedback. I decided to go with 2 slightly different recipes. One with lemon and the other with orange.

    I added apples and ginger to the lemon glogg, which to me tasted better.

    But the orange glogg I let sit over night and that one was much stronger.

    Everyone seemed to like both. They all braved a blizzard for it!!!

    Thanks again!
