Sparkling Strawberry Lime

Hey, heyyyy! We’re not sure where you are, but where we are, it’s still too cold for our liking. So we’re continuing on with our mission to channel warmer weather by drinking spring-inspired drinks! Today’s beverage of choice is our Sparkling Strawberry Lime featuring our Pinetti Notte Pinot Grigio!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Bottle Pinetti Notte Pinot Grigio
1 Can Lime Bubly
Strawberry slices to garnish
Lime slices to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a glass, pour your lime Bubly until half full. Top with Pinetti Notte Pinot Grigio. Garnish glass with strawberry & lime slices. Drink and enjoy!

This one is a great option for our wine drinkers who prefer to steer clear of the sweet wines. The lime Bubly gives it just enough while refraining from taking away from the dry Pinot Grigio taste. We think your palate will thank us!

As always, you can find video recipe and more details on our Instagram @corksandcheers!

Cheers, friends!

Bubbly Blueberry Lemonade

Hey, y’all! We know it’s still winter but we are getting tired of the gloomy, cold days. Who’s with us!? That’s why we’ve decided to go into full blown spring-drink mode in order to hopefully BRING. THE. SPRING! 

Today’s delicious little number features our favorite Dellatorri Sparkling Moscato and we’re pairing it with fresh blueberries and a yummy blueberry lemonade! It is the perfect little refresher to enjoy mid-day all the way into the wee hours of the night!

Here’s what you’ll need:
Fresh blueberries
Dellatorri Sparkling Moscato
Hubert’s Blueberry Lemonade
Lemon for garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a wine glass, drop a handful of fresh blueberries. Top the blueberries with your Dellatorri Sparkling moscato, and finish it off with Hubert’s blueberry lemonade. Garnish with a lemon, clink glasses, and enjoy!

This is a perfect little cocktail for all occasions — but especially being that shower season is coming up…we think this would be a hit as you shower a special bride-to-be or to have for guests at a baby shower! Or, as always, you can just make it for you…because you deserve a drink, mama!

Galentine’s Dipped Flutes

L-L-L-LADIEEEES! Oh. My. Gosh. We have the CUTEST Galentine’s activity/treat for you today and we have been DYING to share it with you! As you know well, we typically come here with a fun, new drink for you to try, but today we’re coming at you with something to pour that drink into. Behold, the champagne flute… but it’s not just ANY flute. It’s a white-chocolate dipped Galentine’s Day flute! And it is to. die. for.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Champagne flutes
Melting Chocolate
Sprinkles
And, might we suggest — Ogio Prosecco to enjoy when you’re finished!

Here’s how you make them:
First, pour your sprinkles into a dish so they’re ready to go. Next, heat your melting chocolate in a small bowl per the instructions. Once melted, dip the top of your champagne flute into the chocolate and then immediately into your sprinkles. (Think margarita glass/salt rim type of thing). Set glass aside to dry and continue to dip in sprinkles as needed as the chocolate will probably slide down the glass slightly. Once dry, pour your Prosecco and enjoy! It’s the “wine and chocolate” pairing you never knew you needed!

These were so easy to make and turned out SO DANG CUTE! We think these would be such a hit at a Galentine’s Party and we want to see how yours turned out! Share with us on Instagram and tag us @corksandcheers!
ALSO! Remember our Hard Candy Prosecco!? YES! You could easily combine both of these lil’ recipes for an extra cute V-Day treat — dipped flutes AND candy!

Xoxo, gals!

Hard Candy Prosecco

How are we already 2 months into 2021, right?! February snuck right up on us which means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you’ve been around here any amount of time, you know one thing to be true — we love celebrating anything, but especially holidays! And the holiday all about love is about as “us” as it gets!

Today, we’re bringing you the sweetest, easiest, and yummiest little V-Day drink to share with your favorite gals or with that sweet someone. Regardless, it’s going to be a hit…and it takes little to no effort on your part. To make our Hard Candy Prosecco you literally need the ingredients in the title.

You guessed it — Here’s what you’ll need:
Ogio Prosecco
Jolly Ranchers Hard Candy

Here’s how you make it:
In a champagne flute, pour your Prosecco. Next, pick your favorite JR flavor and drop it in the glass. Let sit for 2-4 minutes or until you’re ready to drink it. And voila — you have the most DELISH candied-champagne! And the bonus!? When you’re finished drinking, you have a sweet little candy waiting for you to eat it at the bottom of the glass!

Not only is this probably the easiest drink we’ve ever made — and that’s saying something — it’s also really stinking cute! Especially after letting the candy sit for a bit…because then you end up with colorful champagne! YES PLEASE.

We hope no matter how, who, or what you’re celebrating this Valentine’s Day, that you know and feel how loved you are —especially by all of us here at Corks + Cheers!

Xoxo!

Strawberry Lemonade Rosé

February is cominnnnng, y’all, which means ALL the rosé recipes. But let’s be clear about one thing— this doesn’t mean February is the only month for it. We are firm believers that *all* months are fair game for some rosé, amen?! Which is why we’re bringing you our Strawberry Lemonade Rosé featuring our Rue de Pearl Rosé. This one is sure to be a crowd favorite!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Pink Lemonade
-Strawberry slices for garnish

And here’s how you make it:

Wham bam — it really is as easy as that! This recipe is perfect for the ladies (and gents) who aren’t all about a dry rosé, but don’t want their wine too sweet, either. The added lemonade and strawberry slices gives it just enough flavor without making it tase *too* sweet and still maintaining the bold flavors of the rosé.

Blood Orange Bourbon Bubbly

Light the fire and grab your comfies, y’all, because we are coming to you today with THE perfect cozy night cocktail for you! We’ve taken two of our FAVORITE beverages, added some blood orange flare, and mixed them all together to give you our Blood Orange Bourbon Bubbly featuring our Ogio Prosecco! We understand that the name is kind of extra, but when you taste (and honestly when you just LOOK at the prettiness) this drink, you’ll see that the name was warranted.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Ogio Prosecco
-1 shot bourbon of your choice (we went with Maker’s!)
-Bai Bubbles in blood orange
-Orange slices
-Mint leaves
-Cranberries


And here’s how you do it:
In a glass over ice, pour 1 part Bai bubbles until glass is about 1/3 full. Next, add 1 shot of bourbon. Top with Ogio Prosecco. Finish with an orange slice on the rim, and garnish with mint leaves and cranberries!

Oh my LAWD isn’t she BEAUTIFUL!? And the taste matches the look, too! The bourbon mixed with the bubbles is just the right amount of comfort paired with celebration. And what’s not to celebrate right now — the weirdest year in history is wrapping up and the holidays are ALL THE WAY HERE! YAAAAS!

We cannot wait to hear how much you love this one! Let us know how you enjoy it when you make it! And as per usual, you can check out our instagram @corksandcheers for the video on how to make it!

Bubbly Blackberry Cab

Continuing with our Cabernet theme, we’re back with another yummy fall cocktail where the spotlight continues shining on our beloved Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon. This very well could be the simplest fall drink we’ve given you to date — and we’re not mad about it! (You won’t be either!) Introducing our delightful Bubbly Blackberry cocktail! 

Here’s what you’ll need:

For all of you wannabe red-wine lovers who are gun shy due to tase, this is a great way to ease your palate into a good red because it has the sweetness of the Bai to offset the dryness! *chef’s kiss*….PERFECTION!
