Christmas specialties at Tivoli

Every year, you can enjoy the an annual Christmas market in Tivoli. Over the years, this has proven to be quite successful.

In addition to arts and crafts displays, you can also find many "not so usual" Christmas treats. For example, waffle on a stick (for those who miss an ice-cream) or a "Klejner" kind of seasonal donut. You can also try æbleskiver (litterally apple slice, but those donuts actually don't have a single piece of apple in them), traditionnaly you would enjoy them by three with icing sugar and strawberry jam.

To survive trough all this (and the cold), a good mulled wine (gløgg) will do. If the cold is too intense for you, you can "extend" the gløgg (or any hot drink, even an innocent hot chocolate!) with more or less alcohol (usually you have the choice between 2, 4 or 6 cl of added spirit)... Another drink to try: the "hot apple wine," or æblegløgg. Apple juice, white wine, apple, ginger, etc. ... Delicious! I really need to find the recipe!
