A traditional Norwegian hot drink found on

Bishop is traditional Norwegian  hot, alcoholic, spicey drink that reminds of gløgg, just that it also contains orange. This is really something to warm a frozen body on those rainy autumn evenings that’s coming soon. Maybe along with some gingerbread with, for example, blue cheese and figs.

The recipe is for 4-6 servings.


1.5 dl [0,3 pt] black currant cordial
2 dl [0,4 dl] water
6 dl [1,2 pt] red wine
1 orange
50 g [1,75 oz] sugar, or to taste
1 cinnamon stick
5 cloves


[1] Wash the orange and peel off thin pieces with a potato peel without getting the white below.

[2] Mix the black currant cordial and water and bring to a boil.

[3] Add orange peel and spices and let it simmer 5-10 minutes on medium heat.

[4] add the red wine  and bring close to boiling just before serving.
