Mulled wine (Glögg)

A hot drink based from wine. Traditionally consumed in Austria (Glühwein), Germany, Britain and the Scandinavian countries, on Christmas bazaars and festivities that are held outdoors. Don’t buy a very expensive wine for the drink, it’s not necessary, but don’t use too poor or cheap also. It’s important when heating not to bring the wine to a boil or you’ll lose flavor and alcohol. Sugar can be substituted with honey, and it’s also popular to add raisins, nuts and apples. Serve in mugs or tall thick glasses with a handle. It is a traditional drink during winter, especially around Christmas and Halloween.
