Recipe courtesy of Bronte Aurell at Scandinavian Kitchen


  • 1 bottle of red wine cheap and cheerful will do!
  • 80g Caster sugar
  • 1 large stick or 2 small sticks of cinnamon
  • 5g Dried ginger
  • 10 Cloves
  • 5 Cardamom pods
  • Piece of Seville orange peel can substitute with other type of orange, although it will not be as bitter


  • STEP 1

    Pour the wine into a saucepan and add the sugar and all the spices. Heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling (around 80º C- anything above and the alcohol will start to evaporate). Turn off the heat and leave to infuse for an hour or more.

  • STEP 2

    Strain the spices - and your glögg mulled wine is ready. Serve in small cups, warm, with a teaspoon of flaked almond and raisins added.

  • STEP 3

    A dash of cognac or rum can be added to the finished product for extra warmth.
