With the help of a delicious selection of McCormick® products at H-E-B, I have created a fabulous libation to elevate your seasonal gatherings. Inspired by the flavors and spices of the holiday’s most famous cookie, here’s my recipe for Mulled Gingerbread White Wine…

Next, you’ll want to add the bottle of Chardonnay, ½ cup of apple cider, ¼ cup of brandy, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon of McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract to a large pan over low-medium heat. Stir thoroughly. Fun tip: instead of using the traditional red wine for a mulled recipe, shake it up with a Chardonnay! It’s surprisingly refreshing.
