45 million litres of julmust are consumed durring december compared to only 9 million swedes. that's 5 litres / person.
and of course, there's julmust on youtube.

Glögg should also enter the equation on a cold winter evening, in my opinion.

http://www.theworldwidegourmet.com/drinks/hot/glogg-sweden.htm
"The high point of Christmas in Sweden is the year's biggest buffet - a smörgåsbord of traditional delicacies, both hot and cold, given an extra festive flair for Christmas Eve," Robert explains from his restaurant in the heart of Stockholm's Old Town.

"In my opinion, nothing is more typical than Glögg, a potent mulled wine flavored with sugar and spices that is served with gingerbread in the days leading up to Christmas, evoking all the warmth and scents of Christmases past.

"It is best drunk hot, and usually served only during Christmas holidays with peeled (or simply chopped) almonds and raisins.

"The Glögg will be even spicier and more flavorful if you bottle it and leave it for a week. You can also leave out the vodka if you want something with less alcohol."


Ingredients

• 1 bottle of red table wine
• 50 ml - 100 ml (1/4 - 1/2 cup) vodka (optional)
• 5-20 cloves
• 1 rounded tsp. cardamom seeds
• 2 to 4 cinnamon sticks
• 1 or 2 pieces of ginger
• Zest of half a lemon
• 125 to 250 ml (1/2 to 1 cup) sugar
• 1 rounded tsp. vanilla sugar

Petey told me about Julmust a while back, but I totally forgot about it until I saw it in Ikea the other day. I can see why its so popular:)

Yeah. Glögg is also nice. And I think there are about as many Glögg variants as there are people in Sweden. But it's used very differently. I still remember the variant we made that basically consisted of:

One bottle of strong red wine
One bottle of Vodka
Vanilla stick
Glögg spices

Let's just say it was, umm..., "potent". :-)


*Is all out of Julmust and Marshmallow Santas* Must buy more...

Definitely do. It's really good. I can look up the exact ingredients later today. A buddy of mine happened to put his head above it when we were warming it on the stove and inhaled. Instant dissiness :-)

Actually there is... Well, actually, it's more like a "Diet Julmust". No sugar, just artificial sweetening products instead..
