LIGHTEN THE PALETTE WITH OUR SPRING APPROVED SPIRITS
One of my life pleasures is pairing spirits to individuals and pairing spirits to each seasonal change. Dry finishes, fruit palettes, and lighter flavors -- spring is finally here. When this lighter weather starts to hit, my drink-of-choice instinctively changes. I have some favorites to share with you as well as having discovered some new delights.
DOMAINE DE BENDEL ROSE
Dry and Light, this is such a beautiful Rose and my absolute favorite. A perfect drink when wanting to enjoy lunch without feeling too intoxicated or just popping open on a hot sunny afternoon. Easy to drink and incredibly affordable, I definitely recommend buying a few at a time for this will be consumed quickly.
LA MARCA PROSECCO
One of the loveliest Prosecco's or Sparkling Wines, this is one that is easily overlooked. I am incredibly particular with my bubblies and this can hold its own against higher end competition. Crisp and ready to party, this Prosecco is just deliciously perfect.
LUDLOW ELDERFLOWER, CAMOMILE & LEMON VERBENA
This is pure Spring. With elderflower and chamomile flavors, citrus covers your palette with this gorgeous gin. One of my favorite ways to drink Gin is with the juice of one grapefruit, a splash of soda and twist of lime. I will meet you poolside with that one!
BRENNE SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
There are not many whiskies that I would describe as "Feminine and Light" but this is it. This French whiskey is created by Allison Parc, a woman gaining recognition in the world of whiskey. This whiskey is all Spring and Summer, with notes of florals and fruits. It just excludes femininity. This is a great spirit to introduce to a new whiskey drinker, put on ice, sip and enjoy.
LA GRITONA REPOSADO TEQUILA
Spicy Cucumber Margarita
Strawberry Chamomile Paloma
BELL'S FLAMINGO FRUIT LIGHT
Flamingo Fruit Fight from Bell's Brewery packs a punch with a taste of passionfruit and lime tart ale. With its full acidity flavor, Fruit Flight will definitely be one you reach for on sunny days.
