If this article sounds like a guide to achieving hygge in Hong Kong, please bear with us. In wintertime, glögi or mulled wine is a perfect companion for these reasons: it’s spicy, contains alcohol, and is served warm. Originally, glögi was used to revive messengers and postmen who travelled on horseback in Scandinavia. There you go! Head up to the Peak Lookout and let the warmth of glögi permeate your entire body while your eyes are treated to an amazing view of the Hong Kong skyline.
