Warm Christmas Glogg1 bottle
100 cl water
2 cm fresh ginger
2 cinnamon sticks
6 cardamom pods
4 cups fruit juice (unsweetened) we used blackcurrant sweetened with apple and grape
3 tbsp honey (if your fruit juice tastes sour)
50 g almonds (blanched)
50 g walnuts
100 g raisins
1 orange (thinly sliced)
Boil water, ginger, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods and cloves for 15 minutes and keep it in the fridge over night.
Add the fruit juice, boil it for 30 minutes, remove the spices and the glogg is done. Add chopped nuts, raisins and orange pieces and serve it warm with a cinnamon stick. Cheers!
You can of course replace the fruit juice with red or white wine.
Tip: blanch almond: Boil a pot of water, dump in the almonds, wait for the water to boil again, let them boil for about a minute, pour off the water, and rinse with cold water, and drain. The skins will slip right off if you pinch them.
