Sofia Talvik’s Xmas Calendar 2012 #17


In today’s window I’m making some Swedish Glögg! It’s super easy and you can make it at home!

Here’s what you need for the Glögg:
2 cinnamon sticks
8 cloves
4 Allspice/cardamom seeds
a small piece of sliced fresh ginger
1-2 pieces bitter orange / orange peel
1 bottle of red wine
5 oz brandy
2 table spoons of sugar

Sofia Talvik’s Xmas Calendar: #19

It’s Saturday! So when you’re preparing for that party or dinner that you’re looking forward to tonight, make sure you treat yourself to a real good drink. As we learned how to make our own Glühwein yesterday, I’m sure you have a batch in the fridge by now. So get that bottle out and make a real good ice cold Glühwein cocktail! Check out today’s episode and I’ll show you how!

Glühwein Cocktail

4cl cold red Glühwein
3cl Brandy
1 dl Cranberry juice

Shake with ice cubes until ice cold. Serve with a cinnamon stick!
