Curl up with a glass of Glögg!

01 November 2017 by Dedham Vale Vineyard

Plan ahead and improve your mulled wine game with a batch of English Glögg.  The perfect recipe for a cosy evening beside the fire, bonfire or lazy Christmas evenings beside the tree.

 Glögg! - Recipe from Sarah Raven.

Makes ~ 12 glasses

Place the clove-studded orange and the raisins in a bowl with the brandy, cover and marinate overnight.

Pour 200ml of the red wine into a large saucepan and add the cinnamon sticks, sugar and lemon zest. Heat up the mixture but don't allow it to boil. Meanwhile, drain the marinated fruit. Take the saucepan off the heat. Add the marinated fruit and the almonds. Cover and leave to steep for at least 30 minutes.

Add the remaining wine to the pan and heat up once more, again taking care not to let it get near boiling point. Serve in mugs or glasses, with a spoon in each to scoop up the nuts and fruit.
