This was my Grandmother's recipe. Julglögg (Christmas Glögg) is a spiced wine to serve at holiday parties...

Spice mixture
1 tsp Cardamom
1 tsp Cloves
1 tsp Ginger
3 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup of Vodka

Vanilla Mixture
1 stick Vanilla, cut up
1/2 cup of Vodka

Let these two mixtures stand separately in their own bottles for at least 5 days.
Shake mixtures 2-3 times a day

RECIPE: Add 3/4 cup Sugar to 1 1/2 cups of water, and warm to near boiling point. Add a splash of Lemon Juice, a bottle of red wine and a few spoonfuls of Brandy or Vodka. Add 2tsp of the Vanilla Mixture, and 1 TBSP of the Spice Mix.
Serve piping hot in little cups, sprinkled with sliced Blanched Almonds
