This Swedish punch gets its kick from aquavit, liquor similar to vodka. The wine must steep with the spices for at least 12 hours before drinking, so begin your glogg a day ahead.

  • Servings: 4

Ingredients:

3
Whole Cardamom Pods
3
Whole Cloves
1 1/2"
Piece Fresh Ginger
1 3x1"
Piece Orange Peel
1
Cinnamon Stick
1
Bottle Medium-bodied, dry red wine
Cup
Sugar
½ Cup
Whole, blanched almonds
¼ Cup
Aquavit, optional

Directions:

Place cardamom pods into a heavy plastic bag, and crush them lightly with a rolling pin. Put cardamom, cloves, ginger, orange peel, cinnamon stick and wine into a nonreactive pitcher. Stir, cover and set aside in a cool place overnight.

Strain wine into a 2-quart, nonreactive saucepan, and stir in sugar. Before serving, bring it to a simmer, and stir in almonds and aquavit. Serve hot.
