Glogg

Glogg is essentially a warmed punch made with an infused distilled spirit such as vodka or aquavit as well as fortified wine -- that is, wine that's had extra alcohol added. The infusion needs to steep for a week, so factor that into any party plans.

Ingredients

Infused Vodka

  • 4 ounces vodka
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

Fortified Wine

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 25 ounces dry red wine
  • 12 ounces vodka
  • 4 whole cloves
  • Raisins, sliced almonds, and cinnamon sticks, for garnish

Directions

  1. Infused vodka: Combine vodka and spices in a nonreactive bowl, and stir until mixed thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap, and let steep in a cool, dark place 7 days. Pour mixture through a fine sieve, and discard solids.

  2. Fortified wine: Bring water and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Let sugar syrup cool completely before using.

  3. Combine infused vodka, wine, vodka, and sugar syrup in a large pot, and heat slowly over very low heat (do not let boil). Add cloves, and ladle into mugs. Add raisins, almonds, and a cinnamon stick to each mug, and serve.
