Glögg - Swedish Mulled Wine

Prep Time2 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time32 mins
Course: Drinks, Holidays
Cuisine: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Holiday, Vegan / Plantbased
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1/4 cup sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 bottle red wine (the cheaper the better - we typically buy Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 1 bottle white wine (again, the cheaper the better)
  • 1 cup coconut rum (not traditional but this is to make it gluten-free)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 small slices of fresh ginger
  • 8 cardamom pods crushed
  • 2 cinnamon sticks crushed
  • 8 whole cloves


  • Heat water and sugar in a pot until a simple syrup is formed
  • Add in the wine, coconut rum, and spices (including the orange peel and raisins)
  • Heat mixture over low heat (to prevent alcohol from evaporating out too much) for 30-40 minutes until flavors are well infused
  • When mixture is warm, strain out spices and enjoy!


Note: this will not be exactly like the traditional Swedish beverage as it's not made with aquavit (an alcohol you can only get in Sweden).
For easy spice removal, try placing spices in a tea ball or tying them up in cheesecloth.
