My Dad's recipe that he made EVERY year. A potent version of the traditional Swedish Christmas drink. Just breathing it in will clear the sinuses.

  1. Stir together Aquavit and Wine with sugar into a large pot. Wrap remaining ingredients in cheesecloth, place in pot with low heat for a couple of hours (or crockpot all day). Serve hot and discard cheesecloth wrapped ingredients.
  2. Variation 1: For a milder version and more servings, you can double the wine.
  3. Variation 2: Vodka can be used in the place of Aquavit (Aqvavit) but it will not be as flavorful.

Made this specifically for a neighborhood gathering, & although I'm not a drinker, by all acounts from those who were there, your dad definitely knows his glogg! I did have a small taste myself, I I DID like the fruity flavors that came through! Thanks for the interesting recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
