Happy almost New Year! I’m starting one of my New Year’s resolutions right now…and that’s to start writing on my blog again.
I took a break. My muse left me for about six months as I was called to take care of family matters. 2014 was a challenging year but we are hours away from it being over and I’m ready to kick it to the curb.
Today I’m blogging about Glogg.
Cheers! Have a glass of Glogg!
Last night, we celebrated with dear friends who brought over a homemade bottle of Glogg and boy was it good! You serve it warm in little fancy glasses. It’s a wonderful wintery fusion of flavors that warm your spirits from the inside out!
As a New Year’s gift to you…I’m sharing the recipe. It will leave your home smelling wonderful with cinnamon, cloves and allspice.
- 2 liters Port Wine
- 1 liter Whiskey
- 1 liter Vodka
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup raisins
- 5 tablespoons orange peel
- 3 sticks whole stick cinnamon
- 20 whole cloves

- Combine spices with 1 liter of water and bring to boil.
- Simmer for 1 hour, cool.
