Looking for a low-key, cozy way to welcome in the New Year? How about snuggling up to your honey with a warm cup of glögg? Lest you stress about that charming but pesky umlaut, we’ll toss you a hint: Glögg rhymes with chug. Easy, right? Now here’s another tip: Feel free to use an inexpensive wine, since the added spices will take center stage in this winter cocktail.

1 1/2 cups vodka
10 cloves
10 cardamom pods
2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled
Zest of 1 orange
1 (750-ml) bottle inexpensive red wine
1/2 cup sugar

Serves 6
