I’m going to be completely honest with you, I use Mirassou Moscato in several of my drinks because I love it. It’s a light-bodied and delicious wine that really gives my recipes the flavor I’m looking for. If you’ve never tried Mirassou Moscato, let me tell you a little bit about it and why I love Mirassou so much.
Mirassou Moscato really captures the essence of summer with the intense fruit aromas of orange blossom, peach, ripe pineapple and citrus. These bright and fruit-forward aromas extend to the palate through luscious flavors of sweet tropical fruit, mandarin orange and honey, all wrapped in a delightful acidity.
What flavors do you think of with summer? Orange, peach, pineapple and all the delicious fruits included in this amazing wine. This is precisely why it’s the perfect summer wine that I turn to during these sunny hot months. Let’s get real, I use it all year round because it’s amazing!
Another little tip I have for you this summer. If you don’t want to add ice to your wine and have it get watered down, simply freeze little wine cubes in an ice tray and add those to your drink instead. Give it a try when you make this yummy Strawberry Moscato Lemonade!
