Norwegian Gløgg!


Last night, we gave our family and friends here in Canada the opportunity to try a Norwegian traditional Christmas drink. The drink smells like Christmas in a cup with hot cinnamon and evergreen trees.

We cut up some almonds and threw raisins in the mix, as is customary back in Norway. You can make it with water, wine or even vodka, but we usually make it with red wine, mixed 2 parts wine and 1 part gløgg - served piping hot.

I can only handle so much, but it warms my heart! I've never seen a gløgg mix here in Canada before, but I hope to find it at some point. I personally like to sample a little eggnog for Juletide Cheer. If you haven't already tried this Norwegian treat, try it this season!

I totally can't drink a whole cup to myself neither. I think it's a Norwegian acquired taste, if you ask me ;)You better be having a wonderful Christmas holiday over there miss! :D
See you soon!
