  • In a heavy sauce pan combine shallots, white wine, and white wine vinegar.
  • Simmer mixture gently until nearly all liquid has evaporated.
  • Check saucepan to ensure that it has not browned. Browning will discolor the sauce. Wipe off browning with a wet towel.
  • Add heavy cream or liquid replacement. If cream is not being used, an equal amount of water or other liquid must be added to prevent sauce from becoming too thick.
  • Add prepared butter.
  • Over high heat, whisk sauce until butter has melted.
  • Season to taste.
  • Add a few drops of wine vinegar if sauce seems flat. Add butter if sauce is harsh or acidic.
