Drink Number 5 #Sexmas

Christmas Glogg


6 green cardamom pods
4 whole cloves
2 strips orange peel
2 cinnamon sticks, (4 inches/10 cm), broken
2 (each 750 mL) dry red wine
1/2 cup (125 mL) halved dried figs
1/2 cup (125 mL) raisins
1/2 cup (125 mL) blanched almonds
1/4 cup (60 mL) packed brown sugar

Place cardamom, cloves, orange peel and cinnamon sticks on 4-inch (10 cm) square of double-thickness cheesecloth; bring ends up and tie with string.

In large saucepan, bring wine, figs, raisins, almonds, sugar and spice bag just to simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and set aside for up to 2 hours. Rewarm to serve.)

Carter fudged this a little, using the microwave and mixing everything together in a bowl. 🙂
