Notes

What is Glogg?

Especially popular during Advent (the Christian time of preparing for Christmas), this Danish (or Swedish) spiced-wine punch gets its punch from the addition of aquavit or brandy. To take the chill off cold winter nights, it's served hot in cups with several almonds and raisins added to each serving.
