  1. Pour wine into a large pot. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Wrap orange zest, cinnamon sticks, cardamom and cloves in cheesecloth, tie with kitchen string and put into pot. Let boil for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in almonds and raisins and continue to boil for 15 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Place a wire grill over the pot and cover with sugar cubes. Slowly pour on brandy, making sure to completely saturate the sugar. Light sugar with a match and let it flame. When sugar has melted, cover pot with lid to extinguish flame.
  3. Stir and remove spice bag. Serve hot in cups with a few almonds and raisins.

As an American living in Sweden, I have only one suggestion for the glgg, add the raisins and almonds AFTER you've boiled everything!

Most helpful critical review

The almonds and raisins are great for taste but I found the volume of them in the pot a little too much, especially after they absorb some of the liquid.

This recipe is incomplete. There are a ton of variations, but most people boil with the almonds and raisins, but then remove them at the end so you only have the liquid. You can serve with almon...
