Pom Glögg / Mulled pomegranate drink with a Nordic twist


This fruity Glögg  is a non-alcoholic alternative for Mulled Wine. Enjoy this spiced winter drink instead of your regular evening Tea. I was wondering what to do with all those pomegranates in the pantry. I was surfing for recipes using pomegranate as the main ingredient. I stumbled upon scandiefoodie that gave me a new drink for the evening.

Glögg is a traditional scandinavian hot punch of brandy, red wine and sherry flavored with sugar, spices, fruit pieces and almonds.
