Sauv Sangria

Hey, friends! Fall is in full swing over here and we’re still as excited as we were last week when we shared our Spiked Cider! This week, though, it’s all about our red wine lovers. There’s something about a full-bodied red wine that screams fall, right!? That’s why we’re excited to bring you our Sauv Sangria featuring our Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-1 12 oz bottle Ale 8
-1 Orange (we used blood orange)
-1 lemon

And here’s how you make it:
In a pitcher, add orange and lemon slices. Pour Cabernet until about 3/4 of the way full. Top with Ale 8. Refrigerate over night. (A few hours will work, too, but giving it a full night to really infuse those fruit flavors is best for taste!). Serve chilled.

This sangria is the PERFECT blend for the red-wine lover as well as the trying-to-become-a -red-wine-lover. The fruit helps with some of the normal dryness of the Cab, while still being subltle enough to not take away from the bold flavors the cabernet has to offer. This one is so easy to double or triple batch, too, to serve at a fall party or even on Halloween! YES PLEASE!

As always, you can check out our instagram @corksandcheers for the video on how to make it!

Cheers!

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!

Cabernade

Friends! What a wild month it continues to be, are we right!? Quarantine is *kind of* coming to an end but we still know the weirdness and stress of 2020 remains in full swing. We’re all looking for the solution to the madness, and while it may not be *THE* solution, we think we have a pretty good solution to offer you…and we call it Cabernade!

At this point, the highlight of most days is the yummy beverage(s) we get to enjoy sometime into the evening (or afternoon…or morning, who are we to judge!?)…right?! And with summer knocking at our doors, we figured a fun twist on your classic, summery lemonade would be a perfect little treat to share with you!

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 Bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-Lemonade
-Vodka (we used Absolute Citron for added flavor)
-Lemon to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a champagne flute, add 1 shot of vodka, followed by lemonade until glass is about 1/3 to 1/2 full depending on how much wine you prefer. Finally, top with your Cab. You could honestly serve this chilled or at room temperature, we don’t seem to mind either because, honestly you guys — it is SO delish! 

And there you have it — we continue keeping it real over here with the easiest, yummiest recipes for you! We cannot wait to see pictures of you enjoying your Cabernade in the sunshine and in the rain!
