Mulled wine with a Scandinavian twist. This warm traditional wine recipe is meant to warm your spirit and comfort your tastebuds. Get out your crockpot and make this great recipe for your guests this holiday season or sip it by your fireplace.


  • 10 cloves
  • 20 green cardamom pods… cracked
  • 2 bottles Pinot noir (2x750 ml)
  • 4 inches ginger
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup blanched almonds
  • 1 orange peel
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup Aquavit


  1. Add all ingredients minus the aquavit to a crockpot and heat on low for at least 2.5 hours and up to 6. Make sure this never reaches a boil, but is warm enough to heat the mixture.
  2. Add ½ cup of Aquavit 30 minutes prior to serving.
  3. Serve in coffee mug with spoon so your guest can eat the almonds, raisins


  • OPTIONALLY, put all non-edible spices (cloves, cinnamon, ginger, orange, cardamom) in a cheesecloth container before adding to crockpot.
  • Optionally, strain out cloves, cinnamon, ginger, orange, and cardamom before serving.
  • If you are not going to drink all of it, I would recommend straining out the bits before putting in refridgerator.
