Gløgg is Scandinavia’s answer to glühwein, vin chaud or mulled wine, and is a popular drink around Christmas time.
The drink is traditionally made with red wine and spiced with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, orange peel, raisins and almonds. Non-alcoholic gløgg is the most common type consumed in Norway today.
You can buy ready-mixed gløgg in stores all over Norway during the holiday season. All you need to do is heat the mix and serve.
