From an old "Grock" Family recipe originated in Husqvarna, Smaaland, Sweden and handed down to me by my father... GLOG (pronounced "Glug") Ingredients: Almonds 4 to 6 oz package, whole, blanched Cardamom seeds 20 to 25 whole seeds Cinnamon 5 sticks, 2 to 3 inches long Cloves 25 to 30 whole stems and seeds Raisins 1/2 cup Port Wine 1 gallon (or 3 liter bottle) Brandy 1 quart (or 750 ml bottle 80 proof) Orange 1 large juicy Lemon 1 large juicy Sugar 1/4 cup white granulated Procedure: Pour Port wine into large stock pot or cauldron and place on range between medium and low heat setting. Add cardamom, cloves, raisins, cinnamon sticks, and whole almonds. Peel orange and lemon. Squeeze juice of both into pot. Add peelings to the pot. Stir and slowly bring mixture to the boiling point. (25-30 Minutes). - DO NOT BOIL - STIR OFTEN - Allow mixture to simmer just below the boiling point for 30 more minutes. Now that your eyes are beginning to water and you are beginning to feel a little light headed, it's time to add the Brandy. Pour it in slowly and once again, bring the entire mixture up to the boiling point. Again, - DO NOT BOIL - STIR OFTEN - Let entire mixture simmer for another 15 minutes. Now it is time to taste your brew and decide whether it is sweet enough. If not, make simple syrup from the sugar and add to taste. When you have finished tasting and it is to your liking, let the mixture cool. When cool, strain out the almonds and raisins and save in separate container. Strain the mixture through clean "cheesecloth" into large glass container (I use the now empty port wine bottles). Discard the peelings, spices, etc. Serving: Serve hot in cups or mugs. 3 to 4 oz servings are adequate for most people. Garnish with whole almond and a raisin or two in the bottom of the mug. ***** Skol **** God Jul Och Gott Nytt Ar! **** [8d]

Keep it simple. Rum and Sprite. Or bourbon and ginger ale. Vodka and Minute Maid citrus punch. That's about all I drink. My brother used to make some good drinks. If I can get ahold of him I'll post what he's got.

Two of our favorites when we take the boat out in December to look at the rich folk's lighting displays are: 1. Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Schnapps, maybe with a touch of Baileys. 2. Coffee, Kahlua and Baileys. Both are great on a cold evening and keep well in a Thermos if needed.
