In a recent post I shared some of my family's Swedish holiday traditions. One of the traditions involves a mulled beverage called glögg. Every year my dad's Swedish coworker Stephanie makes and bottles her homemade glögg, a recipe that has been passed down in her family in Sweden since the mid 1800s. Lucky for us, she is sharing it with us here at Breathe. Tack så, Stephanie!
"Glögg is a traditional Swedish Christmas drink. During the month of December, it is served all over Sweden," Stephanie says. "When you go to someone’s home in December, they will always serve you a little mug of Glögg (usually with raisins and slivers of almonds in the bottom of the mug) along with gingersnaps."
And, if you are looking for other warm, cozy beverages to make (and give) this winter, don't forget to check out our egg nog spike and drink recipe in the Nov-Dec issue.
