I’m celebrating the holidays with a delicious warm Scandinavian elixir. Perfect to warm you up during the coldest time of the year as it has done for generations! Personally I live in the Pacific Northwest and find this the be the perfect winter drink. Glögg does take a little preparation however it is 100% worth it in my opinion (really not hard at all). I should note that this recipe is geared towards making multiple servings,  with that being said lets dive into the ingredients.

Ingredients: 2 bottles red wine, 1 1⁄2 bottles Port, 8 oz Vodka, 1⁄2 lb Dried figs sliced,

  1. Mix all ingredients together in saucepan on medium heat
  2. Heat to a simmer then take off
  3. Let stand for 2 hours
  4. Strain then reheat
