Today is your lucky day because I’m giving away one of my top secret drinks that I’ve stumbled upon.
I wish I could take the full credit for coming up with this sweet bubbly sensation that takes place during every sip of this cocktail; but I can’t.
I first became aware of such thing by listening to Reid This Reid That podcast hosted by Jacque Reid and Joy Ann Reid. If you’re familiar with either of these ladies you know off top that they are leaders and journalist at the top of their game and are all about black girl magic. Their podcast is fun and informative, covering topics from A-Z; whether it’s a recap on your latest TV show or politics–they have you covered.
They are also very serious about their wine and every podcast there’s a “wine down” segment where they inform their listeners about the wine of the day and just break down what has been going on in their lives over the past week (you should tune in if you haven’t already).
So one day I’m listening to the fabulous podcast of Reid This Reid That where they mentioned their drink of the day was Prosecco mixed with a splash of St. Germain. Now I was familiar with Prosecco, it’s an Italian white wine with a crisp refreshing taste that has become one of my absolute favorites. I even served it at my wedding! However, I was not familiar with the St. Germain. After a little Googling I found out that St. Germain was made from Elderflowers and was a sweet liqueur.
The next week I’m tuning in to the podcast, because I’m a regular listener, and again they mentioned they were having Prosecco and St. Germain! So at this point I knew I had to get my hands on this liqueur. As a wine lover I had to make sure their praise of this cocktail was legit.
I eventually made my way to the ABC store where I would purchase the St. Germain. I browsed a few aisle like I knew what I was looking for. But truth be told, I had no clue. In an attempt to not waist much more of my time I decided to solicit help from an associate.
Soon after I would do my first trial run with mixing the two drinks together. Baaaaaaby (In my New Orleans voice)! This cocktail had me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t believe how great this drink was. Immediately, I had my whole life together. It’s light, it’s sweet, it’s crisp, and it’s GOOD.
It’s the perfect drink if you just need something after work to unwind. It’s perfect if you’re having a brunch or hanging with your girlfriends. For me, I love it when I just want some ME time. On a Sunday afternoon, I’ll pull out my good champagne flutes (you know the real crystal ones), pour me a glass or two, and just take a break from everything in efforts to relax my mind. It’s perfect!
Ladies and Gents….this is a must have! Please let me know if you give this wine duo a try. I’m eager to know your thoughts and what your taste buds are thinking!
Thank you to the Reid ladies for such a delightful drink! Cheers 🥂
