It’s Winter Solstice (June 21st) – Huzzah!
To celebrate I have made my version of gløgg – a cosy, warm your cockles concoction of apple juice, ginger, vodka and spices.
- 2 litres Cawstons Apple & Ginger Juice (or use plain apple juice and fresh ginger)
- 1 x lemon (juice and peel)
- 300 ml Vodka
- 3x cinnmon sticks
- 6x cardamon pods (light crushed)
- 6x cloves
- A small handful of almonds & raisons.
Bung it all in a big pan, bring to boil, then simmer until your house smell delicious.
Where’s the wine?!
Okay this isn’t really a gløgg, but I refuse to call it a ‘Hot Toddy’ because
a) I can’t say it without doing a Sean Connery impression, and
b) it’s sounds too much like ‘Hot Tottie’ which in the UK is slang for an attractive girl.
Me: “Come round for some Hot Totty”
Village men: “Don’t mind if I do!”
