Weekend in Munkamåla
There is such a thing as Swedish Zen, I tell ya. All you need to do is to drive quite far into the woods of Småland, open up the doors to "Grandma's House" and replace your tight fit jeans with wool underwear. What also helps is the temperature crawling down below zero, good friends that can cook, sparking bonfires and glögg.
This year we had the pleasure to try out the Gin & Tonic Glögg from Stockholms Bränneri. As a fan of G&T, I may or may not have jumped up and down a few times as we poured it into the very large bowl to heat it on the open fire. Served with blueberries and rosemary, it gave us some extra warmth that lasted all afternoon.
The batch is sold out for this year, but we advise you to keep an eye out for it next year.
