Naperville, IL (PressExposure) October 14, 2010 -- Two Naperville, Illinois "drinking buddies" have released a new ebook about glogg, the legendary spiced wine beverage traditionally popular during the holiday season. The book, titled "Make Glogg, Not War: The Definitive Guide To Glogg", is the only book ever written about this Scandinavian winter warmer cocktail and is available at http://www.GloggRecipes.com .
"Make Glogg, Not War: The Definitive Guide To Glogg", captures the history and rich tradition of the drink, and includes 25 unique recipes with step by step instructions to make a batch at home. The ebook, available in downloadable PDF format, pays homage to glogg, a wine based beverage flavored by fresh spices that is easily made in a few hours or less. Glogg is typically served warm in mugs during the cold winter months, but can also be served as a summer wine cooler over crushed ice.
The book was researched and written by Jim Hofman and Bill McCartney, two long time glogg enthusiasts from Naperville, Illinois. Over a few drinks, the two men decided to build a website about the beverage, which ultimately became http://www.GloggRecipes.com .
"After doing the research for the website, we discovered there was no definitive guide to glogg available in print or online," said Hofman. "So we decided to write it ourselves." McCartney adds, "Between the two of us, we've probably made hundreds of batches of glogg, but our recipes were never compiled in one place. We wanted to make things easier for other specialty drink connoisseurs and holiday party planners."
"Make Glogg, Not War: The Definitive Guide To Glogg" retails for $12.77 and is available directly from http://www.GloggRecipes.com .
