This recipe for Swedish Glüg has been in my family for generations. One of my characters in my short story, Christmas on Cape Cod -- which can be found in the Christmas anthology, Making Spirits Bright, also makes it. Glüg will warm your heart...and soul to the core! Just make sure you have a designated driver! Cheers!!!


4/5 quart Swedish Aquavit or whiskey

1 gallon port wine

6 prunes

4 apricots

¼ cup sliced almonds

¼ cup raisins

8 cardamom seeds

6 cloves, whole

1 t. allspice

2 cinnamon sticks broken in half

1 orange rind (opt.)

Simmer for ½ hour; then bring to light boil

Carefully hold match over surface to light and flash burn briefly and pour ½ cup sugar through the flame

Cover, turn off, and ladle into mugs…Yum!
