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:
-Bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-Bai bubbles Blackberry Lime
-Blackberries for garnish

And here’s how you make it:
You probably figured this one out already, but in case you want clarity — yes, you simply pour your Bai bubbles over ice about halfway, and top with your Cabernet! Throw some berries in for garnish and voila! DONE!

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!

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!

Spiked Cider

Y’allllll. IT IS HERE. Everyone’s favorite season has swooped in and rescued the weirdness of 2020 and it showed up RIGHT. ON. TIME. FALL IS IN THE AIR and we are so excited to follow suit here at the Corks + Cheers HQ.

While we absolutely loved sharing all of our delicious and bright summer drinks with you guys, we can’t lie — these fall drinks are kiiiiinda making us swoon. We’re all the way ready for the cool temps, the sweaters, the bonfires, the candles…all of it. So to kick off our fall menu, may we introduce you to one of our old favorites with a new twist — our spiked moscato cider!

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Moscato
-Apple Cider
-Caramel Vodka
-1 apple
-Cinnamon sticks for garnish
-1 tsp Cinnamon

And here’s how you make it:
In a pitcher of your choice, add apple slices and pour apple cider until half way full. Top apple cider 1/4 of the way with Chalkboard Moscato, and the other 1/4 with your caramel vodka. Chill. Once chilled, pour into glass, add small apple slices on top of drink, sprinkle with cinnamon, and add cinnamon sticks for garnish.

You guys. This drink is literally a hug in cocktail form. The hints of cinnamon & cider with the sweetness of the moscato is the perfect combo, and then you add in the caramel vodka and it literally just pulls it all together. This will be the perfect drink to serve up at all of your fall get togethers and festivals! One sip and people will be asking you for the recipe, we promise!

Cheers to fall!

Moscato Mule

Oookay, y’all! Where are our Moscow Mule lovers at!? Because over here at C+C HQ, we are BIG fans of a good mule, so we’re honestly a little embarrassed that it has taken us this long to create a wine version of one of our very favorite drinks. But, alas, we did it and it is well worth the wait. Introducing our twist on the Moscow Mule — it’s our Moscato Mule! (*squeals with excitement*).

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Moscato
-Schwepp’s Gingerbeer (or brand of your choice)
-Fresh limes for juice and garnish

And here’s how you make it:
You can probably put 2 and 2 together here, but in case you want us to give the deets, here we go. In a mule glass, pour ginger beer over ice, top with Moscato, and squeeze the juice of about half of a lime. Garnish with lime slice, sip, and enjoy!

Yup, it’s really that easy. And it is SO crisp and delicious. We think it’s the best drink to carry you out of the end of the summer and into the fall. And it really is the perfect twist on your normal mule without sacrificing the flavor and refreshment that we all love! Serve it up at your next gathering or just make a couple for you and your babe to enjoy out on the patio one night! Either way, we think you’ll be refilling your glass a time or two.

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!
