Wine Mint Julep


Every Saturday Western Reserve Wines has a wine tasting from 2-5pm.  We were there last weekend which was the same day as the Kentucky Derby.  In addition to the tasting lineup, Kathi made a wine mint julep for all to try.  She heard about this drink through a wine distributor and thought it would be fun since it was Derby Day.  I liked this version of mint julep better than the traditional bourbon and simple syrup.  These wine mint juleps were light and refreshing.  A great summer cocktail if you're looking to mix it up.

Inspired by Kathi at Western Reserve Wines

Mint
Ice
1 part Sauvignon Blanc
1 part Ginger Ale

In the bottom of the glass or pitcher (depending on how much you're making) muddle the mint with a wooden spoon.  Fill the container halfway with ice, then add equal parts sauvignon blanc and ginger ale.  Garnish each serving with a small sprig of mint.

  4. It smells of sweet strawberries and raspberries. This carries over into the taste, with pronounced sweet raspberry and strawberry, and a hint of cranberry in the finish. https://www.ilovewine.com/
