"Glogg is warm served during the Christmas holidays in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, as it is sweet, spicy, and warming. This is the adult version of the drink, so don't serve it to the kids! Garnish drinks with raisins and slivered almonds. Serve warm with gingerbread cookies." — MYLEEN

I agree, add cardamon seed 1T. This is the greatest drink in the world on a cold, snowy night! The house will smell AMAZING!!!!! Put away the air freshener, put on a great holiday movie and snuggle into a big easy chair with your fluffiest jammies, slippers and blanket when you have a huge, warm cup of this stuff! Did I paint enough of a tempting pic for you? Good, now go make some, and tell the kids to eat the cookies you baked and stop bothering you for a glass of what you're having :-D LOL
With the addition of cardamom this is the exact recipe Mom & I made year in and out. Great memories now with every sip.
This recipe, along with the addition of cardemom, is almost identical to the one my great aunt made every Christmas. It was her Swedish mother's recipe and made the house smell so good!! (She even had a special white enamel pot for it!) Hint: tie the cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and cardemom in cheesecloth. Remove before serving and you won't get them into the cups.
My grandmother make this every christmas along with many other swedish dishes and this was always my favorite i tried this one to make at home i personally perferr her recipie but shes been making it longer than me and its a family recipie
I made this recipe for a Christmas party and it was quite good. I would comment that I followed the directions to a tee and it was overpowering with the wine and spices used. In the attempt to thin down the mix I squeezed two clementines into it and added 1L of seltzer water.
I remember this from growing up with a Swedish grandfather! Many happy Christmas memories! Tack sa mychat!!
Just follow recipe, add cardamon pods and enjoy!!! Its delicious!
