You guys know how much I love sweet wine by now, right? And one of the first sweet reds I ever loved was Roscato! I remember during my World Market glory days (where I’d go at least once a week), I saw this wine… and was like, hmm. Moscato… but red? Roscato? And yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds. And I have a fun history with this wine… it’s won several Wine Clubs I’ve hosted with my girlfriends. First as a standalone wine, second mixed into a sangria. And for this post, I thought it’d be fun to try their Roscato Prosecco mixed into a wine spritzer for the holidays! The recipe is super easy… mix a bottle of Roscato Prosecco with a bottle of Roscato Rosso Dolce (or a sweet red wine, or even a cranberry cocktail juice), and throw in a few orange slices! Sweet, a little fizzy, and so good!
What’s your go-to beverage during the holidays? I always love a glass of wine, but a wine spritzer is definitely a party favorite! Especially one that’s easy to throw together quickly. I had no idea Roscato made a Prosecco! It has a refreshing finish, with notes of green apple and citrus. I’ll definitely be trying this for mimosas too. This wine goes perfectly with appetizers, cheeses and nuts... also with cured meats, poultry and desserts. (Ahem, host a wine night with your friends!) Be sure to serve well-chilled. And pro-tip, if you freeze the orange slices, it helps chill your wine quickly without watering it down!
The holidays are quickly approaching… along with several holiday get togethers! We already had my work holiday party, which was hosted at an art museum this year. I love getting dressed up, and enjoying the company of everyone for an evening out! But we have several more holiday plans coming up with friends and family. I’m so excited for it all! It’s just such a fun season. Do you have any holiday gatherings coming up? Do you host? If you’re planning to host, or bring a drink to serve at a party, be sure to try this recipe for a quick and simple holiday wine spritzer! You can find locations to buy Roscato on their website!
