Mother’s Day Margarita

It’s Mother’s Day weekend, y’all, and I think we can all agree that we should be raising ALLLLL the glasses to ALLLL the moms, amen!? Moms are the literal G L U E that holds all of humanity together. This is a fact and not up for debate. There have never been and never will be a breed of human beings quite like the mamas. So today, we have a special lil drink to help you celebrate the special mom or moms in your life — and if you are a mom yourself, this one’s for you!

Here’s what you’ll need:
3 oz Martin’s Rake Sauvignon Blanc
1/2 oz Silver Tequila
1/2 oz Ruby Red or Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3/4 oz Agave Nectar
Grapefruit slices to garnish
Salt or sugar
Cocktail shaker

And Here’s how you make it:
In your shaker, combine your wine, liquor, fruit juices, and agave nectar. Then you know what to do — sh-sh-sh-shaaaake it, mama! Rim a glass with either sugar or salt, depending on your preference, and pour over ice! Voila — Mama’s Marg is ready for sipping!

And while you’re at it, may we suggest waiting on the special lady hand and foot for the rest of the day!? Unless of course you’re the special lady — then you demand the same kind of service! 😉 

For real — to alllll the moms: biological moms, step-moms, foster moms, spiritual moms, or “second” moms… we appreciate you and we honor the never-ending, all consuming, unconditional love and service you thanklessly offer to the world. We know we speak for your people when we say: the world is better because you’re in it!

As always, you can find the video recipe and more details about this drink and plenty of others on our Instagram @corksandcheers!

Happy Mother’s Day!

White Grapefruit Fizz

Who’s ready for a little new year fizzy!? We are all so thrilled that 2020 and all its weirdness has wrapped up and we are looking ahead with bright eyes at what 2021 will hopefully have in store. And what better way to look ahead than with a delicious glass of wine in hand! Today’s pretty little bev is our White Grapefruit Fizz, and it is as cute as it is delish!

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Sauvignon Blanc
-1 bottle Simple Truth Pink Grapefruit Italian soda
-Grapefruit slices to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a stemless wine glass over ice, pour your chilled Italian soda until about 1/3 full. Top with Chalkboard Sauvignon Blanc. Slice grapefruit and garnish by placing slices in the glass with the wine. Sip and enjoy!

This pretty little drink is sure to make you smile with it’s hint of fizzy grapefruit paired with the sweet (but not too sweet) flavors of our Chalkboard Sauvignon Blanc. Plus, it is the prettiest shade of pink to boot! We love this one!

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

Watermelon Splash

Ok, can we all agree that sunshine and summer and high temps are literally the redemption song of the WEIRDEST spring ever?! Because that’s how we feel..and it deserves celebration! And since we will take ANY reason to celebrate with wine around here, we have a delicious little twist on your regular old glass of Sauvignon Blanc to share with you — it’s our Watermelon Splash! THE. PERFECT. SUMMER. DRINK. (We totally know we’ve said that before but this might be the truest it’s ever been).

This drink is ACTUAL summer in a glass and fair warning: you may or may not intentionally over serve yourself on this one. It’s that good. AND it goes down like — you guessed it — water..melon.

So here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 bottle Chalkboard Sauvignon Blanc
– Sparkling water
– Lemon juice
– 1 bottle Kula Watermelon flavored Bai
– Watermelon chunks to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
In a glass, pour 1 part Bai Kula Watermelon (This is the magic ingredient for sure!), followed by about half a shot of lemon juice. Top with Chalkboard Sauvignon Blanc, and finish with 1 part sparkling water. Garnish with watermelon chunks, and enjoy! 

We promise you you’ll be sipping on this little lady ALL summer long. It’s crisp, light, and so very refreshing! Plus its gorgeous hot pink color is begging for a pretty little instagram pic… let’s be honest!
