Hey, y’all! We’re wrapping up our frozen drink month with another DELISH beverage to keep you cool and happy in this summer heat! This one is the perfect mix of summer staple & wine snob. We can say that, right?! Because we definitely just did. Anyway — without further ado, may we introduce you to our refreshing and delicious Sweet Red Lemonade!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 lemons, juiced
2 tbsp sugar
3 generous scoops lemon sorbet (we used private selection brand — Y U M)
Bottle Acronym Red Blend
Nutribullet or blender of choice
Here’s how you make it:
Start by juicing your two lemons. Add 2 tbsp sugar to fresh squeezed lemon juice and mix until sugar is dissolved. Add 3 generous scoops of your lemon sorbet (and then take a spoonful to eat while you make this of course). Blend together to desired consistency and pour into glass. Top with Acronym red blend and enjoy!
Easy peasy….wait for it.. LEMON SQUEEZY! We absolutely LOVE this drink. There is something different about the flavor matched with its incredible smooth texture that will have you refilling your glass…and refilling again. Annnnd again!
As always, you can check out our instagram @corksandcheers for the video on how to make it!
We’re not entirely sure how, but summer is in it’s final weeks before all the fall things begin to creep in and while we’re not ready for the long, sunshine-y days and warm weather to leave, there’s something about that transition into fall that makes our hearts beat a little bit faster! And what good are we if we don’t hook you up with the perfect summer-to-fall transition drink?!
Enter: our Storyteller Wine-a-rita! It’s literally a margarita topped with red wine and as you wipe the happy tears from your eyes, let us tell you how unbelievably easy this drink is to make. Like, it might be our easiest one ever — and that’s saying something!
So here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle remade Margaritas (or you can make your margs from scratch if that’s more your style)
-1 bottle Storyteller Red Blend
….that’s literally it. You’re welcome.
And here’s how you make it:
Fill your glass about 3/4 full with margarita, on the rocks, and then top with Storyteller Red Blend and serve. Badabing badaboom. We weren’t kidding here — it is the EASIEST. EVER.
And listen — don’t go spouting off about how you shouldn’t mix margaritas and wine or how you shouldn’t ruin a good thing. Have we ever steered you wrong?! No. And this is definitely not ruining a good thing. This is making 2 good things even better. We promise. It’s like the summer-y vibes of a margarita meet the warm notes of a red blend for fall. Also known, simply, as “perfection.”
Cheers to a few more weeks of late nights and memories made before the structure of fall settles in for good!
