If you’re not keen on the red wine flavor of the usual glögg that is served at Christmas or if you are allergic to the tannins in it, you might want to try this delightful non-alcoholic alternative which has the benefit that it can also be served to children.

1 quart or 1 liter best quality ecological apple cider
