White wine is not a summer drink only. It is a great option for your autumn and winter drinks as well. There are many ways to serve white wine when it's cold outside. It is versatile and can be mixed with different cocktails or even served in a coffee mug!
If you're looking to step up your game and impress your friends at parties this year, here are four creative ways to enjoy white wine during cold months!
Mulled White Wine
This wintery drink is perfect for warming up with friends and family. Its delicious blend of spicy flavors will keep everyone happy during the cold months ahead. If you like white wine, this recipe might be your new favorite thing.
- 1 bottle or 3 cans of white wine
- 1 sliced orange
- 100ml of brandy (optional)
- 150ml of honey syrup
- 6 whole cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 star anise
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Do not boil it because you don't want the alcohol to evaporate. Let the wine simmer over medium-lower heat for at least 15 minutes.
Strain and serve warm. You can also garnish the wine with fresh oranges, apples, and spices.
White Wine & Vodka Cocktail
Pour all ingredients over ice and enjoy. Garnish with a lemon wedge of frozen berries for the finishing touch.
White Wine Hot Chocolate
This drink may sound strange but it is actually very tasty. White wine (we highly recommend smooth and buttery Chardonnay for this recipe) marries perfectly with other ingredients creating a sweet and silky libation that is perfect for winter evenings.
- Hot chocolate mix
- 15ml - vodka
- 30ml - heavy cream
- 3 cups of white wine
- Grounded nutmeg
- Cinnamon stick
Combine hot chocolate mix, vanilla vodka, heavy cream, nutmeg, cinnamon stick and 3 cups of white wine in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes until the ingredients are well combined. Garnish with grounded chocolate or marshmallows for an ultimate delight.
