For those who are looking to make the holidays even merrier, we asked Bernie Sun, corporate beverage director of JBF Award winner Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s restaurants, to suggest affordable wine pairings for the season’s classic desserts.

For our second installment, we asked Sun to recommend the perfect pairing for gingerbread cake or cookies​. His pick? Disznókó Tokaji Late Harvest 2011 ($22/500ml). "This special Hungarian sweet wine, made from botrytised Furmint grapes, offers notes of honey, lemon cake, and beeswax, all excellent accompaniments to ginger," he explains.

To whip up a similar dessert, try this recipe for ginger cookies. Happy holidays!
