It’s Wine Wednesday, and SCBD is 5 today so we will definitely be celebrating! In case you are looking for more wine cocktails for your upcoming Thanksgiving gatherings, Halloween parties or fall brunches with family and friends, treat your guests to these festive wine cocktails!
Here are two delish ecipes on behalf of Santa Margherita including an Orange Cinnamon Blossom and Lemon Elderflower Cocktail featuring the brand’s Prosecco Superiore!
Orange Cinnamon Blossom
1 bottle of Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup sugar
3 whole cloves
3 whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks
Rinse lemon and orange and thinly slice them, discarding seeds; quarter the orange slices. Put fruit in a 4- to 5-quart pan. Add honey, sugar (use the smaller amount if you prefer drinks on the tart side, the larger if you want a sweeter flavor), cloves and allspice. With a knife, cut the cinnamon sticks lengthwise into thinner strips. Add cinnamon and 2 cups water to pan; bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and boil gently for 5 minutes. Pour Prosecco into hot citrus base and heat until steaming, about 8 minutes. Keep warm over low heat. Ladle into heatproof cups or wineglasses.
