When it's freezing outside and you just want to be warm, there is nothing better than Glogg simmering on the stove top (obviously, the warmth comes when you drink it. It's potent!). For those who haven't heard of this mystery heaven drink, it is a spiced red wine cocktail, served warm.
It snowed for the first time yesterday, and nothing sounded better to me than Glogg. The H busted out in the cold and picked up all of the ingredients for the deliciousness.
What you'll need:
- 1 Bottle of Red Wine
- .5 Liter Brandy
- 10 Cardamom Pods
- 1 Cinnamon Stick (we just put some ground cinnamon in)
- 1/2 Orange Peel (we didn't have any oranges, so just put a dash of orange juice in)
- 1/2 lbs of Sugar
- You can also add dates, cloves, raisins, almonds, or figs
What you need to do:
Easy! Put it all in a pot and let it simmer for 45 minutes. Boom. Glogg.
Now, just imagine sitting next to a fire, in cozy PJ's, sipping on Glogg - pretty perfect winter night, if you ask me.
