The people at Kolner specialize in making a variety of sugar products and this is their natural sugar cone for Glogg making. It works well with any recipe, but I feel it works best with my Grandmother's Glogg Recipe that was handed down to her from her mother before she left to come to the US.
Grandma Hanson's Glogg Recipe:
- 2 750ml Bottles of Dry Red Table Wine (nothing expensive, but with good deep flavor)
- 2oz Dried orange peel
- 2oz Cinnamon Sticks
- 20 Cardamom Seeds (remove from pod)
- 20 Whole Cloves
- 1c Blanched Almonds
- 1c Seedless Raisins
- 1 Natural Sugar Cone (I prefer the 8.8oz Kolen Sugar Cone)
- 1 Piece Dried Ginger Root (about 1”)
- 1.5pt Aquavit (Aalborg Jubileum or Linie)
- Pour the Wine, Raisins, and Almonds into a large pot and apply heat.
- Place the spices in cheese cloth tied into a bag into the pot.
- Bring mixture to near a simmer, DO NOT BOIL.
- Place a Screen over the Pot and put the Sugar Cone on top.
- Heat .5pt of the Aquavit to make it WARM
- Pour the Warm Aquavit over the Sugar and Ignite. (Make sure you are in an open area when lighting)
- After the Sugar has disolved into the wine mixture pour in the rest of the Aquavit and remove the Spice Bag.
- Take mixture off the heat and ladle into Glogg Mugs immediately with some of the raisins and almonds in each mug.
