Looking for a summer sipper? When the heat strikes, we love a chilled cocktail on the rocks, and nothing beats a chilled glass of white wine overlooking the harbor. Here are several choices for your summer cocktails and wine. Cheers!
Mix 1 part Bacardi Gold rum with 2 parts chilled, bottled Coca-Cola. Add the juice of 2 lime wedges. Serve in a rocks glass with ice.
Stoli Raz Lemonade
Herradura Fresh Margarita
Treo Winemaker’s Blend Red, Hess Select
This blend of Merlot, Syrah, and Petite Sirah has aromas of wild cherry, plum, vanilla, wild berry, and black currant jam. Enjoy the juicy flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, and black cherry on the palate, with a long, soft finish. Pair it with flank steak, blue cheese burgers, or grilled salmon.
Sauvignon Blanc, North Coast, Hess Select
An aroma of grassy tones gives way to plenty of citrus and tropical fruit for a crisp, bright freshness and a full, rich mouthfeel. Fermented in stainless steel, this wine is a first-class warm-weather sipper, perfect when paired with prosciutto-wrapped grilled peaches, fresh basil and tomatoes, and chopped raw salads with goat cheese.
