 Spiced Glogg

Spiced GloggGlogg is essentially mulled wine and this is such a well-thought out version. Taste Food adds Port and Cointreau, which enrich the red wine and soften its coarse edges, and the orange and spices…


  • 1 gallon dry red wine
  • 2 cups of vodka
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Angostura bitters
  • 6 whole cardamom, crushed
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • peel of 1 orange
  • orange slices
  • 2 cups golden raisins
  • 2 cups whole almonds


Mix together wine, sugar, spices and orange peel in a non-reactive container and let stand for a minimum of eight hours. Strain mixture into pot or slow cooker, add 2 cups of vodka, and simmer until warm, stirring often. To serve, add a few raisins and almonds to each mug before ladling in the warm Glogg and garnish with an orange slice.
