Christmas Calendar Door 21 - Mulled white wine

I am not a big fan of red white, so therefore I have preference for mulled wine based on white wine as well.

And for a gathering of friends I decided to try a combination of white wine and apple juice in a ratio of 1:1, so it is more "friendly" for the people needing to drive a car afterwards.

In order not to a too sweet mulled wine, I decided not to add extra sugar and I also decided to use a dry white wine.

My guests found this mulled white wine to be quiet refreshing. Last year I also made mulled white wine using a combination of both elder flower cordial and apple juice, which you can find here.
