Scandinavian Glüwein

Glögg is a traditional Scandinavian drink: a spiced wine that is typically served warm. It is traditionally served during the winter months.

It is a mixture of red wine, sugar, and various spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom. Some recipes may include additional ingredients such as almonds, raisins, or orange peel. It is then typically served in small cups with a few raisins and slivered almonds floating on top, often with gingerbread cookies or other holiday treats.

There are many variations of Glögg. Below is an overview of some of the variations.

  • Red Glögg is the traditional and most common type of Glögg with red wine, brandy, spices (such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom), and sometimes citrus fruits, raisins, and almonds.
  • White Glögg is made with white wine instead of red wine and typically includes spices such as vanilla and cardamom. It’s also sometimes made with almonds, raisins, and citrus fruits.
  • Mulled cider Glögg is a non-alcoholic version made with apple cider instead of wine. It’s typically spiced with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
  • Berry Glögg is a mix of red and black currants, raspberries, and strawberries, as well as red wine, brandy, and spices.
  • Chocolate Glögg includes cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and red wine, along with spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.
  • Gingerbread Glögg includes gingerbread syrup, spices such as cinnamon and cardamom, and red wine.
  • Non-alcoholic Glögg is made with grape juice or cranberry juice instead of wine and typically spiced with cinnamon, cloves, and orange peel.

These are just a few examples of the many variations of Glögg. Each variation has its unique flavour profile and can be customized to suit individual tastes.
