This recipe is right on, except I don't add any water, and zest the entire orange. I also found out that most people don't like any almonds in their cup! They do like a few raisins! Merry Christmas!!!!

We made this for a Christmas treat. It was an instant hit with "yumms" "oh wow!" and smiles all around. This will be a treasured part of our family holiday celebration from now on. I grew up on bottled "Glogg" but there is no comparison. This is lighter and sweeter with wonderful balance in the spices. I followed the recipe exactly the first time. After we quickly consumed the first batch, I tried to "wing" it and added too much brandy. The original recipe is just right. Thank you for adding the recipe and helping to start a new holiday tradition in our family!

We had this for a party door opener drink! Just didn't add the raisins and almonds.
