This recipe for Gløgg by Rebekka Bay (Designer for COS), I found among other DIY-ideas for Christmas at COS (their blog is lacking any kind of usability yet). Gløgg is a Scandinavian hot spiced wine punch for the cold winter evenings. You should start the production today, for the preparation time takes one month..
1. soak almonds and raisins in alcohol (any leftover will do) for a month under a closed lid.
2. prepare a piece of muslin with cinnamon, cardamon, orange peel and clove, about 25 gram all together.
3. in a pan, simmer the spices in 3 deciliter of water for 10 minutes, before adding a bottle of red wine, 100 gram sugar and a generous glass (or two) of port.
4. add almonds and raisins, continue to simmer, taking care not to reach boiling point.
