Gløgg is Norway’s equivalent of mulled wine. The traditional Gløgg is dark with a red wine base and seeped with a wide range of dried fruits and spices. This version is more like spiced apple cider and a little lighter than the traditional one and not as sweet. A bottle of this would be a nice addition to any food hamper you give away for christmas or just as small hostess gift for when you visiting.
I dried apples slices to serve with this drink and also to give away with a bottle of this concentrate.
1 liter good quality apple juice
1 bottle of white wine
1 dl sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
8-10 whole cloves
4 quarter inch slices of fresh ginger
1 vanilla pod
Dried apple slices
If you want to make more just adjust the recipe.
Putt all the ingredients in a pot and cook to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer until the liquid is halved. Strain the drink and pour it in sterile bottles.
When serving this drink I take one part of the concentrate and one part juice or white wine or a mix of both.
Heat up the mixture and pour the warm liquid into glasses and garnish with dried apple slices, dried cranberries and cinnamon.
