Photographer's Note

Mulled wine, similar to the German Glühwein ("glowing wine"), the French vin chaud ("hot wine"), the Italian vin brulé ("burnt wine"), the Polish Grzane Wino ("heated wine"), the Slovak Varené vino ("boiled wine"), the Hungarian Forralt bor ("boiled wine") and the Russian глинтвейн ("glintvein"), is wine, usually red wine, combined with spices and is usually served hot. In the old times wine often went bad, but by adding spices and honey it could be made drinkable again. Nowadays it is a traditional drink during winter, and especially around Christmas, to warm up. In Italy, this beverage is typically drunk in the northern, more Germanic part of the country.

Glogg (Swedish: Glögg, Norwegian: Gløgg, Danish: Gløgg, Finnish: Glögi, Icelandic: Glögg, Estonian: Glögi ) is the Scandinavian form of mulled wine, similar to Glühwein in German-speaking countries. Glühwein is usually prepared from (not too expensive, sometimes outright cheap) red wine, which is heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves and sugar.

In Romania it is called vin fiert ("boiled wine"), and can be made using both red or white wine.

The bottle containing glögg is warmed up over small heat sources like candles, and you get that empty bottle in a matter of minutes :)
