Beverages - Drinks

Glogg - a neighbor whose family roots are in Denmark gave my family this terrific, potent winter beverage recipe.  Some refer to it as "mulled" wine.  If Glogg doesn't warm you up, I don't know what will.  For best results, use a stainless steel or ceramic pot; don't use aluminum or copper or you'll end up with a metallic tasting drink. 

2 - 750 ml bottles burgundy (decent quality, doesn't need to be the most expensive)
1 - 750 ml bottle brandy
2 - 750 ml bottles Port wine
good sized handful of slivered almonds
6 cardamom seeds
2 cinnamon sticks (or 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon)
4 whole cloves (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup prunes
1/2 cup dried apricots
3 or 4 1" slices of orange zest
2 cups granulated sugar (sugar in the raw tastes best)

In a large Dutch oven bring to a boil: burgundy wine, almonds, prunes, raisins, apricots, zest, cinnamon, cloves & cardamom.  Let simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Strain out the fruit & save.  Add the sugar & brandy.  Bring the whole mixture to a rolling boil for about 10 minutes.

CAREFULLY flambé the entire mixture.  Let it flame for about 2 minutes to burn off the excess alcohol.

Stir in the final bottles of Port wine.  Add back the almonds & fruit.  Serve immediately.

Hint: DO NOT stand over the Glogg as it cooks, the aroma will get you drunk!

Be responsible, Don't Drink & Drive
