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. 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!

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.

Red, WINE, + Blue Slushie

Happy JULY, friends! Why does it seem like it took 3 years for us to get to May and about 3 days for us to get to July!? Anyone else!? Either way, we are SO excited to start the month out the best way we know how. — celebrating our beautiful country! Today’s drink is a little more involved than our normal 2 minute cocktail, but we think the 4th of July is a worthwhile cause… plus it’s worth the labor.

Introducing our Red WINE + Blue Slushie! It’s our take on a frozen wine slushie..only there are multiple wines AND it’s patriotic. YAAAAS!!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Bottle Delatorri Sparkling Moscato
1 Bottle Myles & Moore Rosé
1/2 c Lemonade
Ice (lots of ice) 
2 tbsp Grenadine
1/4 c Frozen Cherries
1/4 c Frozen Blueberries
1/4 Cup Sweetened Coconut Milk
3 drops blue food coloring
Blender, nutribullet, etc.

Here’s how you make it:
You will start by doing one layer at a time. We decided to go blue on the bottom, white in the middle, and red on top. Little disclaimer for you: Once they were all poured over one another, however, they kind of marbleized into an adorable tie-dye looking treat because, as you can imagine in July, they melt pretty quickly. Regardless, the end product is so fun and yummy! Ooookay, ANYWAY! Back to what I was saying — let’s make this baby!
In your blender, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup lemonade, 2/3 cup frozen blueberries, and 3 drops blue food coloring. Blend until consistency is that of a slushie. If your mixture gets too runny, just add a few more frozen berries — they act as ice without watering it down. Next, you can either pour that in your glass *OR* another option is to stick it in the freezer until you’re all the way ready to pour each part. This might be a better idea ;).
Next up,  it’s your white layer. After cleaning out your blender, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup Delatorri Sparkling Rosé, and 1/4 cup sweetened coconut milk. Blend to desired consistency, and pour (or freeze). Finally, make your red layer. After cleaning your blender one last time, combine 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup Myles & Moore Rosé, 2 tbsp grenadine, and 1/4 cup frozen cherries. Blend to desired consistency. Pour over blue and white layers or stick in the freezer if you’re waiting to serve. The trick is really just making sure they are thick enough and equal in their consistencies to stack. Otherwise you will get your marble-y mixture sooner than you might want. But like we mentioned earlier, the marble/tie-dye look is kind of adorable and we are a little bit obsessssed!! We garnished ours with some cute little American Flag toothpicks, but you have options! Throw some fruit on top, add a fruit skewer with cherries and blueberries, or make something we haven’t even thought of! But get creative and have fun with it!

Voila! That’s it. It’s actually an extremely easy process, it’s simply a bit more time consuming than our other drinks! And if you’re reading this thinking, “hold UP! I come here for QUICK and easy cocktails — we STILL got you, mama! If you want to cut down on time and ingredients but still get the effects and the TASTE of the slush — you can make a layered wine cocktail of 1/2 cup lemonade, 1 cup moscato, and 1 cup rosé! Throw some berries in there and boom — your drink is made and it’s pretty darn delicious, too.

We would love to see what fun variations you come up with while making your slushies! Tag us on instagram @corksandcheers & Facebook at Corks + Cheers! And as usual, check out our IG page for the recipe and video!

We hope you all have a fun, safe, and SUNNY Fourth! Enjoy your friends, family, fireworks, and all the fun treats! Cheers to our beautiful country and our beautiful community! 

Tequila Rosé

Laaaaadies! We’re back with more summery goodness and today it’s all about our Tequila lovers! Doesn’t sunshine and warm weather just feel like the right time to drink all the tequila drinks AND all the rosé?! Sure, we kind of think this about the other 3 seasons, too, but if we’re being honest, there’s something about a good drink mixed with all things summer. Basically, all this rambling to say — you’re gonna want this drink! We are pleased to introduce you to our (your) brand new friend, Tequila Rosé!

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bottle Rue de Perle Rosé
1 shot Patron (or tequila of choice)
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 c strawberries
1 lime to garnish

And here’s how you make it:
Start by muddling your strawberries, but set 1 or 2 aside for garnish. Once muddled, add about 1tbsp strawberries to your glass. Over strawberries, add 1 shot of tequila. Add 1 tbsp lime juice, and top with chilled Rue de Perle Rosé. Garnish with strawberry & lime slices. 

And there you go! Easy drinks are our specialty around here, and this one is no exception. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy all summer long whether you’re planning a great big party or just hosting a little girls night with your favorites. Or maybe you just deserve a treat for keeping the kids alive and the house standing on any given weeknight — we are in full support of that reasoning, too. Regardless, we think you deserve this one!

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!
