This feature looks a bit weird as it was posted from my ipad.
In Christmas time in Denmark, it is tradition to drink the hot, wine based drink gløgg. Gløgg typically consist of red wine, schnapps, raisin, almonds and typical Christmas spices. Here are some places, where you can buy it in Copenhagen! (But it's also very easy to make it yourself, just google for a recipe). It also comes in a white wine version and even an apple version. Always drink it with a bunch of delicious, hot æbleskiver. Nom nom nom.
