What To Drink With Mince Pies?


 

The humble mince pie - crumbly pastry, rich filling - is the epitome for me of Christmas indulgence. Forget your Chocolate (we have Easter for that), forget the imported Pannettone. Just give me a mince-pie and I’ll be happy. Happier with a dollop of brandy butter too if truth be told; even happier with something to drink too.

Here are my five suggestions; which incidentally are also excellent accompaniments to the Christmas Pudding too:

1 - Muscat de Rivesaltes

2 - A decent Armagnac - [suggestion]

3 - Sweet Madeira

4 - Sweet Tokaji - []

5 - Australian Liqueur Muscat - []

I think a nice Brachetto would be wonderful with this.

Why not a tawny port or a Late Bottle Vintage port? Something with a little tannin but not too much. I can vouch for port working with the Christmas pudding!
