Say Hello to Spring

Say Hello to Spring

Warmer weather is approaching and that means beverage menus everywhere will be blooming with delicious spring cocktails before we know it. Nothing says springtime quite like a tangy light-bodied wine paired with sensational fruit flavors. In celebration of the change in season, I’ve prepared a few refreshing recipes perfect for this time of year. Spring Blush, made with a mix of Watermelon Purée, rosé wine, citrus and fizzy ginger ale, is a crowd-pleaser (in case you’re hosting a spring soiree anytime soon). If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional, choose to sip on this White Peach Sangria instead, a classic wine punch with a peachy twist. Either of these concoctions make for an excellent patio accompaniment. Not only are they delicious, but you’ll find they’re rather simple to prepare. Cheers! -Angela
