Are you a wine lover? I have always enjoyed a glass of wine but only recently have really appreciated wine. I have tended toward Pinot Grigio as my wine type of choice and am now branching out. I’ve just discovered Moscato which makes me really uncool since I guess this is something that even Drake (for people of my age you may better know him as Jimmy from Degrassi) is known to drink. Haha – I’m getting too old.
I was inspired to try Moscato by the Summer 2016 edition of Food & Drink magazine published by the LCBO in Ontario. You can read it here online and we always look forward to it coming out. We always try to each pick 1 or 2 recipes or drinks to try. It also just happens to be my 8 year old daughter’s favourite thing in the world right now – I think she just loves the pictures. Her copy is so dog eared you’d barely recognize it. Page 136 introduced me to Banrock Station’s Pink Moscato and inspired this drink. It is pretty to look at it and it tastes amazing. Plus, added bonus: It won’t break the bank. It is only $10.95 Canadian which is almost free for my American friends after exchange. (Just kidding, kind of) Great enjoyed as is and just as enjoyable as part of a Raspberry Lemonade Moscato Slush.
So, raspberry lemonade moscato slush has become a new summer favourite in our house. I foresee a wine cabinet full of pink moscato and a freezer full of raspberries and lemonade concentrate in the not so distant future.
I highly recommend trying this drink…like now, or if you must wait, this weekend. It has just the right balance of sweet and tart and totally hits the spot. One bottle makes 4 really good sized servings or 2 slurpee sized. Cheers, make a toast!
