Ruby Red Rose Martini

Here is anther yummy drink just in time for summer.

Oh yeahh, this is a sweet and savory drink you can enjoy all summer long. It’s a twist on the classic “Shirley Temple” using Red Moscato Wine.

A while back I ordered one of these at the bar, and learned that a truely classic Shirley temple is made with ginger ale and not a lemon-lime soda.  And if your like me you’re probably wondering why.. the reason behind that was because… Shirley Temple was a “ginger” of course! Well, now that makes a whole lot of sense!

When I was younger I used to order these all the time (because it was the only cool looking non-alcoholic drink, oviously, oh and it tasted yummy!). Something about sweet cherries and bubbly soda{mmm mmm mmm}.

Now as I get older I would rather something a bit more refreshing to sip on while laying in the hot sun. The Red Moscato Wine does just the trick, now the drink is not overly sweet.

For two Martini’s you will need:

  • 4 oz Red Moscato Wine
  • 4 0z Ginger Ale
  • 1  oz Cherry Juice or Rose Grenadian
  • some Maraschino cherries and slice lemons for garnish

You can use a bar shaker if you have one and shake up the wine, cherry juice and ice. If you don’t that is okay too, just stir the wine and Grenadian together. Then add the ginger ale slowly and top off with some cherries and add a lemon for a garnish.

If you want to make this ahead of time in a pitcher you can do that as well. One bottle of wine, a half liter of ginger ale and 4 oz of cherry juice should do the trick. 😉

* Add cut up slices of lemons to a muffin pan and fill with water then freeze it and add to your pitcher to keep your Red Ruby’s colder for longer.



Sparling White Wine {Peach} Sangria

It’s getting warmer out. YAY! Time for the sweet summer time and drinks poolside. Here is an easy drink you can create and put in a pitcher to share with all of your girls while relaxing in the sunshine.

Peach Moscato Sangria Ingred

You will need:

1 bottle of white wine { My personal favorite is Barefoot Moscato because it’s sweet yet refreshing. Best part is they also make a Red Moscato and a White so you could use either)
1/2 a Liter of Sprite
2 cups Peach flavored Juice or 4 oz. Peach Schnapps
2 white peaches
2 oranges
You can also add strawberries and raspberries or what ever you’d like!

Peach and wine
If you want to make this drink per glass and wine first, fill it up half way. Then add some sprite and 1/2 oz. of peach schnapps. Garnish with peaches and oranges.
