White Wine & Elderflower Gløgg

Tuukka Koski

Yield: Yields about 10 cups

Servings: 10

Throughout December, Scandinavians meet outside to drink the hot spiced wine punch known as gløgg (pronounced “gleug”) and sing carols—it’s like a cocktail party in the snow. Red wine is traditional in gløgg, but white wine is a nice change of pace in this light, bright version.

Ingredients

  • 2 750-ml bottles dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 cups elderflower cordial
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 10 green cardamom pods
  • 1-1/3 cups golden raisins
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup Cognac

Preparation

  • In a 4-quart pot, bring the wine, cordial, sugar, and cardamom pods to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Turn the heat down and gently simmer for 5 minutes. Discard the cardamom pods; add the raisins, almonds, and Cognac. Serve hot in small glasses with spoons for scooping up the raisins and almonds.
