In my neck of the woods, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a steaming
mug of glogg. The recipe that follows is called professor’s glogg
for some reason (unknown to me). One caveat: this drink is potent.
Collect and hide all car keys at the start of the evening.
(1) Pour the wine & vodhka into a large pot. Add spices, fruit and
nuts. Turn on the heat and bring the ingredients to a temperature
just below the boil.
(2) Now for the fun part. Invite all of your guests into the kitchen.
Place the sugar cubes in a sieve (one that you don’t mind sacrificing
to the greater good). Don oven mitts and set the glogg on fire.
Ladle the burning glogg over the sugar cubes until it has all
melted. I usually do this with the overhead lights off for greater
(3) When the sugar is melted, cover the pot to extinguish the flame.
Ladle glogg, fruit and nuts into mugs and serve.
Note: This recipe serves about a dozen glogg devotees. We’re boozers.
Your mileage is sure to vary.
The wine and spirits need not be premium. Indeed, my father
insists that expensive ingredients yield an inferior product.
