This Lunetta Prosecco received an 8.5 raing scale from me and what I love about it is how fruity it is! It’s the perfect sparkling to mix with your fresh juices for brunch. Try this when the girls come over and I promise you’ll love it! 

Until next week happy Sipping winefriends!  

Holiday Draaanks: Talk 30 to ME

IMG_7926.JPG

 Talk 30 to Me, created in honor of my 30th birthday for my blog launch party, is my take on my favorite drink, a mango mojito. I mixed premium white rum, mango nectar, lime, mint, and Cocktail Artist simple syrup. Instead of club soda, I topped it with prosecco... to make it snobby (wink).

 TheCocktail Artist (@cocktailartists) Premium Simple Syrup made by Sadiyyah Iddeen (@saddiatlbartender) really added the right amount of sweetness to the drink and the best part is that it’s only 10 calories, doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or artificial coloring. All their products were developed by award-winning mixologists to help people elevate their cocktail game at home. Pick up a bottle at Walmart!

 Ingredients:

  • 2 oz white rum
  • 5-10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 oz of simple syrup
  • 3 oz mango nectar
  • prosecco

1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle mint with lime juice

2. Add mango nectar and shake

3. Strain into a glass with ice

4. Top with prosecco

5. Enjoy!

 

Happy Sipping,

Wind Down LIVE: Desireé

So excited to have another somm join us for #WineDownLIVE! This week we were happy to have Desireé (@winenoire) joining us to discuss another tasty champagne 🍾 for you to enjoy for the holidays. 

La Marca Prosecco

Let me just say— I loved this! You all know we haven’t had many champagnes or sparkling wines on the show and that’s because of all wine this one is usually the one I reach for the least unless it’s brunch. But baaaaby this one right here? BOMB. Waste not a second in going to pick this up. You will thank me later!

Wine rating: 10

What am pairing with this one? French Fries

How am I brunching with this one? Add lemonade, orange juice, and a splash of cranberry.

Check out this neat trick Desiree uses  to save and style her wine labels! Follow her on IG @winenoire.
