Add a little magic to any Gaelic-themed celebration with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi! . Toast Ireland with the Woodbridge Good Luck Grigio and Emerald Isle Cooler, two easy-to-make and easy-to-drink cocktails. These refreshing sippers feature fresh ingredients that lend to their bright and festive gold and green hues.
Woodbridge Good Luck Grigio
· Flesh of one peeled peach, as ripe as possible, or ¼ cup peach nectar
· 2 oz. Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Pinot Grigio
· 2 oz. club soda, chilled
· 1 sprig mint, for garnish
· Add the peach flesh to a blender and puree until smooth
· Combine the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Pinot Grigio and the club soda in a wineglass
· Add the peach puree
· Stir, garnish with mint, and serve
Woodbridge Emerald Isle Cooler
· 1 cup simple syrup (recipe below)
· 1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, about 3 to 4 lemons
· ½ bottle Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay
· 2 cups water
· 2 cups ice cubes
· ½ seedless cucumber
· Pour the ginger-infused syrup into a larger pitcher
· Add the lemon juice, chardonnay and water, and stir, then add ice
· With a vegetable peeler, remove and discard a lengthwise strip of skin from one side of the half-cucumber. Shave 8 to 10 long, paper-thin ribbons of cucumber into the pitcher. Push them down into the ice and stir gently, so the cucumber unfolds to make an attractive visual garnish in the lemonade
· Chill for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to meld, or up to an hour. Serve well-iced in tall glasses
· 1 cup sugar
· 1 cup water
· 3 to 10 thin slices fresh ginger
· Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Add 3 to 10 slices of fresh ginger, with 3 giving the finished syrup a mild ginger flavor and 10 yielding a more assertive result
· Simmer the mixture for 8 to 10 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and the vapors rising from the pot smell noticeably of ginger
· Cool the syrup to room temperature, then strain out the ginger
· Chill the syrup until you’re ready to assemble the lemonade
Thanks to Casamigos Tequila and Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi for these great recipes!
