What's in your favorite glögg? Do you like to include red wine or vodka, cloves or cinnamon, almonds or raisins? There are as many kinds of glögg — with alcohol and without — as there are people making it. This special mulled wine is a vital part of the Christmas season for Swedes. Join in the fun competition to see who really has the best glögg in Chicago!

Anyone wishing to attend as a taste taster, judge or competitor should reserve a space and get contest rules for the Got Glögg competition at the Swedish American Museum on Nov. 17, 6-9 p.m. Ten glögg entries are accepted based on date of entry, completed information and past participation, if applicable. There is no admission fee for approved applicants. Competitors should bring a minimum of 4 liters (one gallon) of pre-made homemade glögg in a thermos or crockpot; there will be limited stove availability to rewarm the glögg entries so judges and tasters can enjoy it to its fullest potential.

Volvo Overseas - the ultimate experience

During the taste contest, glögg will be scored based on taste, color, aroma and overall quality. Participants and judges will go around with a card to rank each glögg on these four areas. The cards will be collected and non-partial judges will tally the results to determine the winner.

$20/includes sandwiches and samples from all our competing glögg masters. To sign up to judge the mulled wine as a taster, purchase taster tickets online or at the museum. Make your reservations now! 773.728.8111 / museum@samac.org / www.swedishamericanmuseum.org
