Okay, y’all…how is everyone holding up!? We are DEEP into this wild quarantine season and speaking from experience, some of us are ready to lose our minds, right!? Which is where we come in! Who’s ready for an April pick-me-up?!
Today we’re sharing our to-die-for Ogio Creamsicle Mimosas and y’all — these things put the OG mimosas to shame! The recipe is super easy, and the taste is DE-LISH!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Oranges to garnish
And here’s how you make it:
It’s honestly a normal mimosa, with the addition of heavy cream. We started by pouring our OJ into a champagne flute, followed by the heavy cream, and topped with our Prosecco. As far as amounts, you can kind of eyeball it & adjust to taste. We, of course, are big believers in more Prosecco than OJ, but you do you! Garnish with orange slices and enjoy! SO smooth, so delicious.
We are obsessed with this one! It really is like a creamsicle in a cup and is the PERFECT drink to transition us into those warmer temps (and hopefully out of quarantine, right!?) This is a great option to enjoy with brunch OR as a dessert after a meal! Whichever way you decide to enjoy it, we know you won’t be disappointed!
Well, well, well — it’s finally spring, April is in full swing, and we are all mandated by the government to enjoy it ALONE from the comfort of our own homes. I don’t know that any season of life has ever warranted our desperate need for a national wine holiday more than this one, right?!
But fear not, beloved Quaranteam — international Malbec Day is here to save the day…or week..or month? Or however long this quarantine lasts! Basically, it’s here to save the day for as many days as you need it to!
Today, to celebrate, we’re featuring one of our absolute favorite bottles, Espuela Del Gaucho Malbec. This Malbec boasts an incredible flavor, marked by hints of dark cherries and plum that mix effortlessly with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Basically, trust us when we say you should probably go ahead and buy more than one bottle because you’re not going to want this one to end. Plus — quarantine — you feel us?!
We paired this Malbec with some Pretzel Thins and a pair of Murray cheeses. We used both English Cheddar as well as their North Sea Cheese and we highly recommend both. They are the perfect pairing to compliment your glass (bottle?) of Malbec.
In all seriousness, though, we hope you & your loved ones are all staying healthy and safe during this crazy time! We think now is the perfect time to pour yourself a glass of wine, and take a moment to truly unwind, be it alone or with your quarantine partner — 6 feet apart, of course!
Cheers and happy Malbec Day, friends!
Okay, friends… in case you missed it — we’ve got your easter gift-giving covered — but now it’s time to focus on treating yourself! Which is why we’re brining you the most amazing spring mimosa to sip on while you’re celebrating Easter (or spring in general) from your couch!
Introducing the Delatorri Coconut Pineapple Mimosa. The ingredients are kind of self explanatory but let’s break it down to be sure.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bottle of Dellatorri Sparkling Moscato
Pineapple to garnish
And here’s how you make it:
In a champagne flute, pour equal parts coconut milk and pineapple juice. Top with Dellatorri Sparkling Moscato and add a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with pineapple chunks, and enjoy!
Ok but you guys — can we just talk about HOW DIVINE THIS DRINK IS?! First of all it tastes like something you’d receive at some swanky beachfront hotel, and second of all it is just plain pretty to look at! And can’t we all use a pretty little drink to stare at right now!?
So whatever your Easter plans are — make sure they include this mimosa! You will thank us later, we promise!
Happy Easter, Corks + Cheers Family!
Well, friends, Easter looks a little bit different for us this year unfortunately…but that doesn’t mean we still didn’t find a way to celebrate!
Just because we’re all quarantined to our houses and aren’t getting to have our normal Easter celebrations, doesn’t mean the bunny is off duty! That’s why we’ve come up with this SUPER easy little Easter gift basket…perfect for dropping on a friend’s doorstep or gifting your Easter host when you get to celebrate (even if it’s a few weeks late!)
For this little gift, we went with the perfect spring-pink drink — our Chalkboard Rosé — and paired it with these delicious, limited edition Lindt Chocolate Neapolitan Truffles! All we did was grab a cute basket while on one of our *essential* grocery store trips, added some pretty easter grass to the bottom, and put the wine and chocolate inside! So simple, so cute, and thoughtful enough to remind your people that just because we’re not together, doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate!
To make it a little more personal, throw in a handwritten note of encouragement — because who doesn’t love a little bit of affirmation to go with their wine and chocolate! We know we do!
The best part about this — you can make it over and over and over again to gift to as many friends as you want!
We hope you’re staying safe and healthy friends… and we hope you’re finding the beauty in a quieter, calmer Easter this year! Hoppy Easter & Hoppy Gifting!
