Glögg is a traditional Swedish mulled wine served during winter. It is one of the things my family pines over as soon as the cold weather hits.
We serve it at Thanksgiving, winter family-gatherings, and of course, we serve it during the Christmas season. It’s a warming drink that makes my heart crave the snowy grounds of Sweden.
It’s so adored in my family that the mere thought of not having it causes us to be distraught. Just this past Thanksgiving my mom asks me “did you ask your grandmother to bring glögg?”, and then proceeds to freak out when I told her no.
I honestly probably very nearly ruined Thanksgiving. So I decided to make our own. I mean how hard could it be? Not that hard as you’ll see in this recipe, which was a win!
And that ladies and gentlemen, is the story of how I saved the Silfverduk Thanksgiving this year with this wonderful drink (but not really because my grandmother is always freakishly prepared and had several mixes of glögg at the ready… so technically we saved Thanksgiving together).
Trust me, this drink is well worth a try.
