This will be the royal family's first Christmas without Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away this past September. The late monarch loved the holiday season and maintained many traditions each year, whether they were public ones—like the Christmas broadcast—or private ones, like a lively game of charades that the family engaged in on Christmas night. And now, we've just learned about the drink that QEII loved to enjoy during the holiday season: a spicy white wine.
Now, you may be thinking to yourself: ‘Spicy white wine? But white wine is usually sweet.’ And while you'd be correct in thinking so, former royal chef Darren McGrady recently opened up to Express about the unique wine that Queen Elizabeth would treat herself to around Christmastime.
