1 . Pour the wine into a large saucepan. Remove the zest of the citrus fruits and set aside. Squeeze fruits and add juice to wine. 2 . Slightly crush the cardamoms and cloves using a pestle and mortar. Tie up lemon peel, orange zest, spices and ginger in a muslin cloth or spice ball and add to the wine. Add raisins, almonds and sugar. Bring wine mixture to just under boiling point stirring to dissolve the sugar, do not boil. 3 . Reduce heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes, or until flavors are well blended and almonds are soft. Skim wine from time to time to remove any foam. Taste the Glogg and add more sugar as necessary. 4 . Just before serving, add the Bitters and Aquavit Rum, Madeira or Vodka.
