Mulled Red Wine This recipe is inspired by Glogg, a traditional Scandinavian drink. It’s particularly flavorful because of cardamom, a fragrant spice frequently found in Scandinavian baking. Directions:


In a large, nonreactive pot, combine one bottle of medium or full-bodied red wine, such as Merlot, with 1/2 cup Mulling Spice Blend.

Add 1/4 cup sugar, 6 crushed cardamom pods or 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom, 1/4 cup raisins and 1/4 cup blanched almonds.

Cover and bring to a simmer. Uncover and reduce to low heat, occasionally stirring.

Simmer for at least 20 minutes until spices infuse the wine and the raisins plump. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Serve warm in mugs in 1/2 cup portions.

Makes at least 4 servings.
