Glogg (Mulled Wine) - Help!

You know, I've tried to make this several times and it never comes out tasting right. I've had it at parties and it's so delicious, but I can't make it work in my own kitchen.

Does anyone have a fool-proof recipe for mulled wine / spiced wine / Glogg?

Re: Glogg (Mulled Wine) - Help!

This is a recipe I just had last week in Germany. It's called "glow" wine because it makes your cheeks warm!

GLUHWEIN
1/2 liter red wine
1/4 liter water
1 stick cinnamon
3 whole cloves
1/4 c. sugar
Boil water and seasonings for 5 minutes. Add red wine and sugar. Heat until hot; do not boil. Remove seasonings and serve hot in glass over a slice of lemon. Serves 4.


This is a recipe for Grog, which I've had in other cold-weather European countries.

GROG (Beverage)
1/2 lb. cubed sugar
1/2 liter water
Juice from 1 lemon
3/4 liter strong tea
1/4 liter rum
Pour boiling water over cubed sugar and lemon juice. When the sugar is dissolved, add hot tea and rum. Serve hot.

I hope these work for you.

Thanks so much! I'm definitely going to try it out. (My sister-in-law's birthday is Christmas Eve, and we're having a small cocktail party.)

Oh, that sounds great too...

I have to admit, I'm a fan of the hot booze drink but I always end up defaulting to Irish Coffee. Borrrrring.

Anyone else have some cold-weather alcohol-based drinks they'd like to share? I'm sure they'll all come in handy at all the holiday parties coming up!

This recipe is one from my younger years, but it was good. Add peppermint schnapps to hot cocoa (to taste). We used to take this cross country skiing.
