 SPRITZ IT UP!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The summer is in full swing now and with temperatures in the mid-thirties its time to cool off.  Wine Kitz would love to help you and having tried these drinks myself, I am eager to share the results! Whether you are a red or white wine drinker we think a unique spritzer might be the way to go.  Here are a couple of classy and creative ideas well worth trying.

 

  1. The Watermelon White Wine spritzer is both subtle and refreshing. Its easy to make and classy enough to serve anywhere, anytime!   You could even make this inside the hollowed-out watermelon, like I did, if you’re feeling something fun and fancy! Its quick to make (15 minutes with the watermelon bowl) and is lovely for lounging on the deck. Follow the link below for the recipe:

  1. The Blackberry Red Wine Spritzer is fruity and fresh. Its simple to make and provides a tried and true classic feel.  Try adding mint to this recipe to enhance the cool summery sensations.  A little lime is also fantastic.  Here is the link to the recipe:

  1. For something a little more daring try the Blackberry Kalimotxo. It’s a perfect choice for a mixed crowd or to serve to those with a sweet tooth! Though it may not appeal too all, its always fun to try something new; you never know, you might just love it!  When I tried this, I found it best with a drier red and the ice and lime were essential.  Make sure this one is well chilled.  The blackberry syrup made it too sweet for me, so I cut the sugar by just heating and smooshing the berries.  This one’s definitely out there, but was a ton of fun to try.   The recipe is below:

We hope your summer is going well so far and that your wines are relaxing and refreshing you in all this heat!

 

See you soon,

Steph and Kerry. 

Note** Steph took some Lovely photos I wanted to include in the post-but the computer will not let me!

At least this month I got the title of the Newsletter right. I'll just give myself a Gold star for that and maybe Next month we get images...

This August will see not one, but TWO limited releases from our fabulous Atmosphere line! We hope to see them in the store by late August if not sooner.

The Atmosphere Viognier Red and White wines are something I've been looking forward to bringing into the store since the first moment I saw the write ups on them!

Viognier Red: Aromas of dark fruit are complimented by spice with hints of vanilla. This medium-full bodied red holds velvety tannins with a lush vibrant finish.  A gorgeous blend of Merlot, Syrah and Viognier.

Viognier White: Layers of Vibrant fruit character, off dry, medium bodied, boasting tropical citrus and green apple notes with a refreshing crisp finish. A beautiful blend of Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

They sound adorable. I can't wait to make the first ones in!

Two new Limited Release Dessert Wines are going to come available early September at Wine Kitz!!

The Apres line is being introduced with two decadent kits!

Chocolate Salted Caramel: The velvety decadence of Chocolate blends beautifully with rich, salted Caramel...

Toasted Marshmallow: Rich and Smokey toasted marshmallow with smooth vanilla and decadent caramelized notes.

Oh. My.

Bring on the snowball fights just so I can enjoy a sip of these, after!!
