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.



Infused Vodka
Fortified Wine


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

This recipe is lovely and bright. It puts color in your cheeks. Leftovers can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge and reheated. The flavor mellows over time. A must for a cold winter night anywhere.
