When most Norwegians think “Norwegian beer”, they think industrial pilsner. Some may even think of our world class craft beers. But few are even aware of the REAL Norwegian beers; our historical beers that are still being brewed, with yeast handed down through centuries. Here’s how I brew my Christmas beer!
Norwegian cider Gløgg with apple brandy
Norway has never produced wine, so Gløgg with wine came from further south. Apples on the other hand…made with hard cider, apple brandy, vanilla, cardamom and citrus, this is a fantastic treat that warms the soul!
Classic Danish Gløgg mulled wine
I was never impressed with the Scandinavian mulled wine called Gløgg. But that changed when I met Lea, and my father-in-law-to-be showed me how you do the damned thing! Here’s Rasmus’ killer Gløgg recipe!
DIY rhubarb tonic
We’re suckers for GT. But the amount of empty bottles bothered us, so we set out to make our own tonic to reduce the small mountain of plastic we produced. Turns out it’s cheaper and far superior to any tonic we’ve ever tried.
