This is a traditional Scandanavian holoiday drink. Personally, I found it way too strong to finish a cup. However, I can see how it can really warm up those bones on a chilly night. If you don't have Aquavit, you can use brandy.

1 bottle tawny port
1 bottle Madeira
1 bottle medium dry sherry
1/2 bottle dry red wine
15 cloves
15 cardamom seeds
1 stick cinnamon
1/2 pound lump sugar
1/2 cup Aquavit
1 cup raisins
1 cup blanched almonds

Combine all ingredients except the sugar, brandy, raisins and nuts in a heavy saucepan and heat slowly. When the wine mixture is hot, place a rack on top of the saucepan so that it covers half of it. Arrange the sugar cubes on the rack, warm the brandy, pour it over the sugar and set it aflame. Ladle the wine mixture over the flaming sugar until sugar is dissolved. Serve in 8-ounce mugs, garnished with the almonds and raisins.
