Personal Notes:
We used to do this at Grandma Arlene's house every holiday season; you may not remember that, Erin, but it was a fun tradition in my mind based solely on the part where the adults would turn off the lights in the house, we'd gather around Grandma Arlene's stove in the kitchen, and someone would light the mixture on fire. So cool if you're a little (or big!) kid.

We made this as adults in Sara's garage at one of Andrew's birthday parties when he was really little. Ok, mostly Josh made it. I was unaware this was a sipping beverage and took it as a shot - do not do that, hahah.

I believe the recipe I have from my mom's recipe box is written in Grandpa Billy's handwriting. There's a Glögg II as well, which of course I will include in this book. Happy drinking!
