Red Wine Glögg Extract

rødvinsgløggekstrakt i glas



The alcohol used for glögg and glögg extract is of course important for the
finished result. Choose good quality, full-bodied types of rum, port and red
wine. They have to be so good that you want to drink them, but don’
have to cost a fortune. Try Cuvée Saint Georges 2017.

Homemade glögg extract is a wonderful hostess gift, especially if you put
together a small set that also includes red wine, raisins and almond slivers.


Prep time: 15 mins
Servings: 1 liter extract

Cook time: 30 mins
Total time: 45 mins


  1. Squeeze the oranges and put the orange juice in a
    saucepan with the water.
  2. Cut oranges/clementines and lemon into thin slices and
    put them in the pan together with muscovado and granulated sugar.
  3. Halve the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds. Mash the
    grains in a pinch of sugar and put the vanilla sugar and the
    empty stick in the pan together with the cloves, cinnamon
    sticks, cardamom capsules, peppercorns, star anise and
  4. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat and let everything simmer for 10-15 minutes until the sugar has disolved.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for approx. 10 minutes. Then add the port wine and rum.
  6. Remove the lemon and orange/clementine slices and pour
    the extract in to a container with a lid and let it cool in the
    fridge for at least 24 hours – preferably longer (the mixture
    can easily be refridgerated for 3-4 weeks).
  7. When ready to use, heat 1,5-2 dl of extract (or more to
    taste) with 1 bottle (750 ml) of good quality red wine in a
    saucepan (we suggest Cuvée Saint Georges 2017) – the
    mixture must not boil or the alcohol will evaporate.
  8. Serve hot with raisins and almond slivers. Enjoy!
