If there’s a summer rule that we love, it’s that it’s important to stay hydrated! Whether your beverage of choice is wine, cider, beer, or gourmet soda, we have you covered, but today we got a couple of special light wine cocktails that are great when the sun in shining. So, don’t be shy, don’t let the rain keep you away, because the heat is returning for the weekend!

The Cocktails:

  • Blueberry Sparkler: A beautiful blending of The Mothervine 100% Blueberry Juice and Simonet Blanc de Blanc. Did you know … that blueberries are ranked to have the highest antioxidants among all fruits and vegetables, that consuming them is good for cognitive health, and that they are native to North America? What better way than in a little fruity, bubbly refresher?
  • Vya Cooler: Have you been interested a bottle of Vya Sweet Vermouth but need another way to use it? Come out and try this cocktail which is a great twist on the classic gin-based cooler. Vermouth adds the herbal notes, some flavored sparkling, and a secret ingredient (gotta stop in to find out all the tricks) make this an easy to throw together little update on the classic cooler!
  • Retsina Mojito: You may know Retsina as that wine that smells like Christmas trees, but modern takes on the distinctive white wine (which gets its unique flavor from time spent aging with Aleppo pine resin) are smoother and more sophisticated. Today’s best producers are taking good wine and making great retsina! This Grecian take on the Mojito pairs the mint and lime that marry well with Retsina’s herbal notes of eucalyptus and pine. Trust us, give it a try!
