A lovely gift, or something to spice up a christmas party – introducing Gram’s English mulled wine spice mix available ready jared in the shop now. It makes a similar drink to Swedish glögg, but at the same time very different. The smell alone will have you singing jingle bells!

What you need:

  • One jar of Gram’s organic mulled wine spices (which contains cinnamon sticks/hel kanel, bayleaves/lagerblad, star anise/sjärnanis and cloves/nejlikor)
  • 2 bottles of red wine
  • 1.5 dl/150 grams sugar
  • 1 orange

jar of sugar, an orange and a jar of spices seen from above

How to make it:

Cut half the orange into small slices with the skin on, put in a pan with the spices and sugar, squeeze over the juice from the other half of the orange.

Add about 2 dl wine and bring to the boil, simmer for 5 minutes until you have a syrup.

Add the rest of the wine and warm up.

Ladle into glasses with a slice of orange, but avoid getting the spices in the glass.

Happy Christmas/God jul!
