Holiday Draaanks: Apple Cider Mimosas

Here is a twist on a classic, Apple Cider Mimosas. This is a simple and delicious recipe that will impress your brunch guests. I recommend a spiced cider (think cinnamon and cloves). If you’re feeling frisky, you can even make the cider from scratch.

FootballxWine series: Pizza & Wine

“It’s a hard knock life for us...” 

Remember that classic JayZ hit? Well Chrishon Lampley of Love Cork Screw labeled her wine with the catchy phrase and her wine, like the classic rap is a complete HIT! 

This week on Wine Down LIVE I put this Concord grape varietal to the test with a classic cheese pizza. Though the pizza left a lot to be desired the pairing itself went well together.

Thank God the wine saved this combo! I love the rich flavor of this wine. To me the Concord grape shows up and came to Part-tay with all the wine lovers no matter how sweet or dry you like it.

Wine Rating: 9.5

Pairing Rating: 7 (the pizza was terrible haha) 

Notes: Serve this table red with pizza or snacks and at any gathering for all wine lovers! 

If you pick this one up you have to let me know how you like it!

We hit 3 cities this summer and had a ball in each one. In every city our goal was to provide an intimate, memorable, classic experience-- and the ladies loved it in every city even with each event being different. Check out our summer travels below!
