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!

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!

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!

Red, WINE, + Blue Slushie

Happy JULY, friends! Why does it seem like it took 3 years for us to get to May and about 3 days for us to get to July!? Anyone else!? Either way, we are SO excited to start the month out the best way we know how. — celebrating our beautiful country! Today’s drink is a little more involved than our normal 2 minute cocktail, but we think the 4th of July is a worthwhile cause… plus it’s worth the labor.

Introducing our Red WINE + Blue Slushie! It’s our take on a frozen wine slushie..only there are multiple wines AND it’s patriotic. YAAAAS!!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Bottle Delatorri Sparkling Moscato
1 Bottle Myles & Moore Rosé
1/2 c Lemonade
Ice (lots of ice) 
2 tbsp Grenadine
1/4 c Frozen Cherries
1/4 c Frozen Blueberries
1/4 Cup Sweetened Coconut Milk
3 drops blue food coloring
Blender, nutribullet, etc.

Here’s how you make it:
You will start by doing one layer at a time. We decided to go blue on the bottom, white in the middle, and red on top. Little disclaimer for you: Once they were all poured over one another, however, they kind of marbleized into an adorable tie-dye looking treat because, as you can imagine in July, they melt pretty quickly. Regardless, the end product is so fun and yummy! Ooookay, ANYWAY! Back to what I was saying — let’s make this baby!
In your blender, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup lemonade, 2/3 cup frozen blueberries, and 3 drops blue food coloring. Blend until consistency is that of a slushie. If your mixture gets too runny, just add a few more frozen berries — they act as ice without watering it down. Next, you can either pour that in your glass *OR* another option is to stick it in the freezer until you’re all the way ready to pour each part. This might be a better idea ;).
Next up,  it’s your white layer. After cleaning out your blender, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup Delatorri Sparkling Rosé, and 1/4 cup sweetened coconut milk. Blend to desired consistency, and pour (or freeze). Finally, make your red layer. After cleaning your blender one last time, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup Myles & Moore Rosé, 2 tbsp grenadine, and 1/4 cup frozen cherries. Blend to desired consistency. Pour over blue and white layers or stick in the freezer if you’re waiting to serve. The trick is really just making sure they are thick enough and equal in their consistencies to stack. Otherwise you will get your marble-y mixture sooner than you might want. But like we mentioned earlier, the marble/tie-dye look is kind of adorable and we are a little bit obsessssed!! We garnished ours with some cute little American Flag toothpicks, but you have options! Throw some fruit on top, add a fruit skewer with cherries and blueberries, or make something we haven’t even thought of! But get creative and have fun with it!

Voila! That’s it. It’s actually an extremely easy process, it’s simply a bit more time consuming than our other drinks! And if you’re reading this thinking, “hold UP! I come here for QUICK and easy cocktails — we STILL got you, mama! If you want to cut down on time and ingredients but still get the effects and the TASTE of the slush — you can make a layered wine cocktail of 1/2 cup lemonade, 1 cup moscato, and 1 cup rosé! Throw some berries in there and boom — your drink is made and it’s pretty darn delicious, too.

We would love to see what fun variations you come up with while making your slushies! Tag us on instagram @corksandcheers & Facebook at Corks + Cheers! And as usual, check out our IG page for the recipe and video!

We hope you all have a fun, safe, and SUNNY Fourth! Enjoy your friends, family, fireworks, and all the fun treats! Cheers to our beautiful country and our beautiful community! 

Tequila Rosé

Laaaaadies! We’re back with more summery goodness and today it’s all about our Tequila lovers! Doesn’t sunshine and warm weather just feel like the right time to drink all the tequila drinks AND all the rosé?! Sure, we kind of think this about the other 3 seasons, too, but if we’re being honest, there’s something about a good drink mixed with all things summer. Basically, all this rambling to say — you’re gonna want this drink! We are pleased to introduce you to our (your) brand new friend, Tequila Rosé!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bottle Rue de Perle Rosé
1 shot Patron (or tequila of choice)
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 c strawberries
1 lime to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
Start by muddling your strawberries, but set 1 or 2 aside for garnish. Once muddled, add about 1tbsp strawberries to your glass. Over strawberries, add 1 shot of tequila. Add 1 tbsp lime juice, and top with chilled Rue de Perle Rosé. Garnish with strawberry & lime slices. 

And there you go! Easy drinks are our specialty around here, and this one is no exception. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy all summer long whether you’re planning a great big party or just hosting a little girls night with your favorites. Or maybe you just deserve a treat for keeping the kids alive and the house standing on any given weeknight — we are in full support of that reasoning, too. Regardless, we think you deserve this one!

Man Makers

Friends! Happy JUNE! Hopefully you’ve been able to relax and enjoy some of the sunshine that we have all so desperately needed! We’re coming at you today with something a little different — as you know, we’re ALLLL about the mamas around here, but this weekend we’re putting all our energy toward showing love to the DADS! And for that reason, we have the perfect drink to spoil your dad, or baby daddy, or family member or friend who’s a dad! May we introduce, The Corks & Cheers Man Makers! 

This DELICIOUS wine mixer was 100% created with our men in mind — and we went a route that we don’t go very often. We are adding BOURBON to our favorite red today! And listen, y’all… this one is AMAZING. I won’t lie, I think we were a little hesitant to try mixing bourbon and red wine, but we just might do it forever and ever now…this combo is amazing and will have the men in your life asking for more.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
Shot of Makers Mark bourbon
1 Tbsp Simple Syrup
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

And here’s how you do it:
You know we like to keep things simple…and this one delivers. In a glass (on the rocks if that’s what you fancy), combine your simple syrup, lemon juice, and Makers. Finish by topping with Cabernet. Then give your man the remote, and tell him to enjoy!

It really is that easy and like I mentioned, we were all so pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this one. It is delicious! Would be amazing paired with a nice steak or some seared salmon… or honestly just by itself! Regardless of how you (or Dad) enjoy it, we think it will be an instant favorite!

Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing dads out there! We are grateful for you and your influence on the ones you get to (or got to!) raise! 

Cheers!
