Spicy mulled white wine eggnog

Could we leave you without a sauce with which to enjoy the panettone? Absolutely not! Eggnog, you know, it is traditional in this time of year, but we wanted to give it a new flavour that connected it to Christmas even more ūüôā ! So we’ve added some spices to the traditional¬†recipe… And¬†the¬†Spicy mulled white wine eggnog was born.

Firstly this recipe will show you how to make mulled wine¬†at home, the main ingredient for¬†our eggnog. For convenience, we have marked the doses to 750 ml of wine, but remember that for a portion of eggnog will need only¬†50 ml of vine. Never mind,¬†if you’ll not use all the wine¬†to prepare this sweet cream… For surely the mulled wine will not be wasted ūüėÄ .

If you prefer a more compact cream, use a still white wine, if you want it more soft and fluffy, a sparkling wine. Take¬†your¬†choice! ūüôā
