What keeps the gleam in his eye as he travels around the world in the freezing cold? I’m guessing it’s not a glass of milk! Absolutely, put out those cookies, because he needs plenty of sugar and carbs to keep going. But, if you pair them with Port you’ll help him keep warm and happy!
It’s so comforting on a cold night, isn’t it? There’s actually a reason! Most table wine is around 10 – 14% alcohol. Port is between 18 and 21%! And, that extra alcohol warms you from the inside very nicely! It also gives the wine a little more heft so you don’t drink too much!
So, if you really want to be on Santa’s “nice” list, whether it’s Ruby Port, Aged Tawny or Vintage Port, leave him a nice little glass to go with those cookies! More about Port wine
