Drink Wine Day

Drink Wine Day!  Yea!  There really isn’t much to say, I just want to get started with celebrating in all honesty.  My bottle of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is chilling and will be ready in a bit.  Meanwhile, I found a site with some listings for cocktails made with wine (click on the White Wine Mai-Tai below for their posting), in case you’re more of a mixed-drink person than a glass-of-wine person.

White Wine Mai-Tai

While not a true Mai-Tai (a Mai-Tai is neither pink in color nor this simple to create), this drink is nevertheless a delicious and surprisingly potent addition to your bartending repertoire. Here’s the recipe:

1 part clear rum, 1 part white wine, a splash of grenadine

Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Pour over a glass full of ice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge or a maraschino cherry.

I have my friend Joleen to thank for introducing me to Kim Crawford’s Sauvignon Blanc, it is delicious and has become my favorite wine.  I think the reason is that it has subtle grapefruit notes and I’m still in the grasp of a grapefruit jones, which has been going for over a year now.  Seriously, I should buy stock in them or something.

Enjoy!  = )
