Danish gløgg recipe
Gløgg: A sweet and spicy seasonal love affair
Drinking wine is normally a sophisticated process, where you can swirl it around before you carefully take the first sip.You could also just chuck it in a pot, throw in spices, sugar and alcohol and bring it to a boil. That is what we do in Denmark - around Christmas anyway. Gløgg is perfect Hygge in the camp during the cold season.
In Denmark, gløgg pairings typically include æbleskiver sprinkled with powdered sugar and accompanied by strawberry marmalade.
200 ml Orangejuice (Best if freshly squeezed)
½ Orange zest
200 ml Water
