Watermelon Moscato Wine Spritzers| Sutter Home Wine - LAURA'S little PARTY

Watermelon Moscato Wine Spritzers| Sutter Home Wine

April 27, 2017

I don't know about you, but I really enjoy the long summer evenings, and times with friends! I can't help but want to start planning some fun gatherings out on the patio! Sutter Home Wines make it so easy by offering a variety of refreshing flavors for everyone's Summertime gatherings! 

Invite your amigas over for the afternoon to relax, catch up, and regroup from your busy schedules! As I was planning our fun Summer visit, I grabbed a bottle of my favorite Sutter Home Pink Moscato wine and started thinking of a tasty drink recipe that I could create. I knew a cool, watermelon & wine spritzer would be the perfect treat!

Decorate wine glasses by painting small designs on the stems of the glasses. I used a gold paint marker and created a unique doodle for each of mis amigas.

The recipe is really easy to put together, and it's so delicious! I tend to gravitate to sweet wines, however, this watermelon moscato wine spritzer has the right balance between not-too-sweet, fresh watermelon, and bubbles! I paired my cocktail recipe with some tasty fiesta shrimp bites. Mmmm! 

The fiesta bites consist of only a few ingredients, and takes less than 20 minutes to prepare - my kind of appetizer! I took a bowl shaped tortilla chip and added a dollop of guacamole. I pan seared some frozen shrimp in olive oil, and sprinkled with taco seasoning mix as I continued to stir them around. Once the shrimp cooled, I added them on top of the guac and chips. See! Super easy. And muy delicioso!

After hours of laughing, and great conversation, it was time to say adios. I wanted my friends to leave with a memory of how Sutter Home made our visit a little more special. As a small token, I sent them home with small bottles of Pink Moscato. This was my way of saying, 'Gracias' for spending a wonderful afternoon with me!

I created some cactus themed tags with the message that read: 'Salud, Amiga'. They were so thankful and couldn't wait to enjoy their own award winning wine for another occasion.

Step 2.
Add a small amount of the mashed up watermelon to each of the wine glasses, and fill a little more than halfway with Sutter Home wine.

Step 3.
Add your splash of club soda, and garnish with chunks of watermelon and lime slices.
