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!

Cheers!

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.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-Bai bubbles Blackberry Lime
-Blackberries for garnish

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!

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.
