Swedish Glogg


Tis the season for all the Holiday beverages. Last year when Josh and I attended December Nights festival at Balboa Park we discovered Swedish Glogg. Josh had heard of it before because one his old bosses is from Sweden. I’m sure most people are more familiar with this drink outside of the States. Growing up in Tennessee the holiday drinks were always spiked eggnog and Irish coffee, that’s what my family sipped on at least. Josh has already decided that this drink is going to become part of our yearly holiday traditions.
