I made this for my holiday party this year and there was nothing left at the end of the night. I have a Swedish girlfriend who advised us to put almonds and raisins in it and it made her nostalgic for her home, where Grogg is a tradition at the holidays. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar as I didn't want this to be too sweet. It turned out warm, homey and delicious and made the house smell incredibly festive. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
