Annika's glögg (Annika’s mulled wine)

Glögg is an essential part of Christmas all over Scandinavia. This is recipe was created by my sister-in-law Annika in her Gothenburg kitchen.

Preparation method

  1. Pour the wine into a pan, add the rest of the ingredients and heat to around 80C/176F, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

  2. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse for at least an hour.

  3. Strain the mixture and return the mulled wine to the bottle - use a funnel to make life easier for yourself. The wine can be kept for around a week.

  4. To serve, pour the wine into a saucepan and heat it.

  5. Place a few flaked almonds and raisins in the bottom of your serving cups, and pour the glögg over the mixture.

  6. If you want to give your glögg a kick, add a splash of either vodka, aquavit, rum or cognac just after you’ve reheated the wine.
