Glogg



GLOGG


1/2 cup vodka
1 - 3 cinnamon sticks
10 cloves
1 teaspoon cardamom

At least twenty-four hours before serving, put above ingredients in container with lid. Shake well, then shake occasionally throughout day.

2 liters of wine. Sangria works well, but any sweet, fruity wine will do.
1/2 cup sugar (more or less, to taste)
Vodka mixture, with cloves and cinnamon sticks strained out.

Put everything in a large pan. Heat well, but don't boil.

Serve with raisins and sliced almonds. These should be put in individual cups before adding about 1/2 cup hot liquid.

Those things look like they could knock you on your butt. :) I'm sure they make for a very interesting Christmas....

people tend to only drink a small amount because it is potent. i did once go to a party where a guy was guzzling the stuff. pretty funny. :)

Anne- I'm thinking a person could simply chew on one of those cinnamon sticks for a while and get a buzzzzzzzz! :)

sounds so good. I might add that to my modest collection of imbibery. Wonder if that's a word...if not, it should be.

mmmm....
