The season for pumpkin spice everything is (sadly) over. Tis the season for warm fires, hot chocolate, and most importantly: Christmas cookies. But when enjoying your favorite cookie this holiday season, whether it be your grandmother’s famous recipe or something unconventional, add a boozy twist by pairing it with wine.
Cabernet and Chocolate Chip Cookies
A crowd favorite all-around. The dark red wine pairs perfectly with the chocolate chips – especially if the chips are dark chocolate.
Shiraz and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Even if oatmeal raisin cookies are your least favorite type of cookie, they will surly become your favorite when paired with Shiraz. The Shiraz compliments the salty oatmeal flavors perfectly.
Champagne and Shortbread Cookies
A rich, crumbly, buttery shortbread cookie is good enough on its own. But when paired with bubbly champagne – it’s even better.
Riesling and Gingerbread Cookies
The quintessential Christmas cookie. The rich, somewhat spicy flavors of the gingerbread cookie pair perfectly with the sweet, peachy taste of Riesling.
Pinot Grigio and Italian Wedding Cookies
Also often called Snowball cookies, these crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth cookies are an Italian favorite, so it only seems right to pair it with Italy’s most popular white wine.
Prosecco and Sugar Cookies
The Christmas staple. The slightly sweet, bubbly Prosecco pairs perfectly with the sweet flavors of the sugar cookie.
