Wine Hacks: No Corkscrew, No Problem

A tale as old as time and a nightmare of a situation. You’ve brought the bottle, but there’s no corkscrew in sight.

We’ve got your back with some simple tips that are easy to pull off to save the party. These methods will help you open the bottle without destroying the cork (or involving a shoe). Just make sure to use caution!

Option A: Screw the Cork
Use a screwdriver to insert a screw into your cork, and use the back of a hammer to remove it (with the cork).

Option B: Book It
Use the shoe method, but swap the shoe for a book.

Option C: Lock & Key
Use your keys! Insert into the cork at a 45-degree angle. Twist and pull up to remove the cork.

Classic Wine Cocktail: The Kir Royale

Prosecco

"Sparks will fly when we’re together."

Classic Wine Cocktail: The Kir Royale

Feeling sexy? Special occasion coming up? Just want a delicious cocktail to celebrate the end of a standard weekday? We know exactly what this calls for – the Kir Royale.

This classic French cocktail is a spin on the Kir, which combines white wine and berry liqueur. And it’s making a serious comeback. Anything vintage feels fancy, and an added bonus of bubbles makes for the “Royale” touch.

Another reason why we love a Kir Royale? It’s simple to switch up by swapping black currant liqueur for raspberry. The world is your wine cocktail – time to seize the day.

Ingredients:
3 oz (9 parts) Ménage à Trois Prosecco
1/3 oz (1 part) crème de cassis (black currant liqueur)

Directions:
Add the crème de cassis to the bottom of the glass, then top it up with Prosecco. Serve in a flute glass.

Stir Things Up With Frozen Fruit Swizzle Sticks

Forbidden fruit may be the sweetest, but frozen fruit might just be the most irresistible of all. We dare you to stir up something new and exciting by slipping frozen fruit swizzle sticks into your glass. Sweet, icy fruits enrich the flavors in chilled wines like our Ménage à Trois California Rosé or Moscato, adding a frosty little bite that keeps things cool till the last sip.
 
Best of all? Making these icy morsels couldn’t be easier. Forget complicated couplings: For this to work, you’ll only need swizzle sticks or skewers and several varieties of fresh fruit. Grapes, berries, melon, apples, pears, and peaches are all wonderful options for pairing with wine. While the berries are ready to go, you can use a melon baller to create bite-sized bits from the melons, apples, and other larger fruits. Then, simply skewer the fruits and place on a baking sheet. Cover in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for three hours or until frozen. Your swizzle sticks are now ready to take a dip in your favorite varietal.
 
Need help finding the perfect match? Try one of our wine and frozen fruit swizzle stick pairings listed below, and before you know it, you’ll be falling head over bottle for these frosted favorites.

If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois California Rosé
Then pair it with … Cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon swizzle sticks. The juicy fruits play nicely with this blend’s smooth acidity. Feel free to “experiment threely” by combining all three melon varieties on a single stick. Swoon!
 
If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois Moscato
Then pair it with … Raspberry or blueberry swizzle sticks. Their slight tartness will balance out the Moscato’s tender sweetness. So very berry good.

If you’re drinking … Ménage à Trois Pinot Grigio
Then pair it with … Apple or pear swizzle sticks. Crisp fruits for fresh wine – need we say more? Consider your tastebuds tantalized.

Some rules are meant for kicking to the curb. You may subscribe to the rule that white no longer belongs in your closet after Labor Day, but when it comes to wine, white is in style year-round.

With so many options at your fingertips, there’s a flavor to fit every mood. Which Ménage à Trois wine will you befriend tonight?

- California White Wine: Undeniably refreshing with juicy fruit aromas. Unlike ordinary white wines, we indulge you with a decadent blend of three beautiful grapes, each mingling together sublimely.

- Pinot Grigio: Fresh, fruit-forward, and deliciously bright. You’ll want to share our Pinot Grigio with your special someones, and we’re happy to oblige.

- Chardonnay: Uncork crisp lemon and lime tastes and alluring aromas, paired with a full body. It’s sunshine in a bottle.

- Sauvignon Blanc: We know you desire vivid flavors and a crisp finish. Explore vibrant, tropical fruit aromas, leading up to bold bursts of lemon, lime, and tangerine on your palate.

- Moscato: A thrilling, flirtatious wine with alluring floral aromas, succulent juicy peach, and the golden, sweet, slightly tart taste of apricot flavors. We’re here to satisfy your indulgences from the first sip to the last.

Cheers to a night of exploring every shade of white with your dinner party guests!

National Red Wine Day: Best Reason to Put On Your Dance Shoes

Dance, dance, dance the day away with our Spanish influenced, soul-stirring, wine cocktail, known as the Spanish Sangria Bailarina. You could say it’s the lighter side of Sangria, since all you need to add is some lemon-lime, or orange soda, and ice, and serve in long, tall, high-ball style cocktail glasses. Some like it hot, and cold. Your closest confidants will undoubtedly be enticed by the invite to this very intimate and very unassuming, Spanish style, social gathering known as, Spanish tapeo. As you imagined, tapeo is what we call Tapas — a very big deal with the Spaniards.

Tapas go back a long way in Spanish history, and are meant to be the light appetizer you indulge yourself and friends with, between meals to help gulp down glasses, a pitcher, or a jug of wine. So the story goes. We love a good story.

What you and your guests will find most alluring about this National Red Wine Day soiree, is the fact that you’ll not only get to deliciously quench your thirst on a hot day, you’ll also satisfy your quest for an exciting adventure in tastes.

Recipe Ingredients:
1. 1 part Gaseosa (or a mixture of lemon-lime and water, or orange soda)
2. 1-part Ménage à Trois California Red

Preparation and Serving Steps:
1. Place 2 Highball Glasses in Scene
2. Add Ice
3. Add 1 Part Ménage à Trois California Red Blend
4. Add 1 Part Lemon Lime Soda
5. Mix and serve well chilled.
6. Standard garnish: Lemon slice

August Virgo Advice: A Method for Madness

Introducing Ménage à Trois Advice, where once a month, we put in our three cents on matters of money, love, life and, of course, wine.

You Ask…
Lately, I feel as though I can sometimes be seen as selfish or moody by friends and coworkers. But when it comes down to it, I’m all about a well-ordered life. How can I come across as more emotionally giving?

…We Tell
At Ménage à Trois, we believe that something incredible can come from a thrilling blend of diverse perspectives, tastes, and experiences. As a Virgo, your essence aligns with our original Ménage à Trois Red Blend: you are both dedicated and analytical, practical but can sometimes have trouble asking for help. You can be a little messy, but you know exactly what goals you want to achieve. Remember that perfection can come from what you perceive as chaos. And in love, trust that your wild idea of romance is a fairytale bound to come true.

Mmmm-Moscato Ice Cream

Moscato

"We will bring you blissful pleasure when we’re together."

Mmmm-Moscato Ice Cream

Maybe you’ve said it yourself, maybe you’ll hear it here first. We think Ice-Cream is sexy. Especially when it’s Moscato Ice Cream, made with Ménage à Trois Moscato wine, which is a sexy sweetie in its own right, with lip-licking flavors and irresistible floral aromas that have been known to elicit sighs of pure pleasure.
 
Yes, we believe that the creamy, smooth, deliciously luscious taste of Ice-Cream blended with Moscato, and topped with fresh, firm, blackberries and raspberries will create a thrilling Ménage à Trois —
one you and your guests won’t soon forget.

Recipe Ingredients:
150 ml Ménage à Trois Moscato
3 tsp. sugar
1 cup heavy cream
Fresh Blackberries
Fresh Raspberries
Shortening
2 Modish Ice Cream Dishes
2 Ice Cream Spoons
Sprig of Fresh Mint
 
Directions:
Tip the wine and sugar into a bowl and whisk together.
Gradually whisk in the cream until it starts to thicken, and just hold its shape.
Pour into a rigid container and freeze until firm, about 3-4 hours.
Serve scoops with seasonal summer fruits splashed, with a dash more Moscato.
Please beware that this recipe for Ménage à Trois Moscato Ice Cream is so good you’ll want to bite, lick, and sip it. (Maybe even slurp it.) We wont tell.

Wine Glass Therapy: How To Choose Glassware

There are endless styles of sexy, shapely wine glasses for you to choose from. Deciding which ones will serve you, and your guests best could drive you crazy. Well, this deft but fun wine therapy session should help you see things more clearly. The first thing to ask yourself is what do you want to get out of your wine glass, besides Ménage à Trois wine of course?

Aroma Releasers and Collectors.
If you want elevated wine aroma release after swirling your glass of wine, and while drinking it, consider wider, shapelier wine glasses with large bowls. General rule is, the richer the aroma, the larger you want your wine glass bowl to be. This style of glass is superb for swirling your wine, while also giving the wine’s aroma a greater surface to stick to.
 
Red Wine vs. White Wine Gasses
With the exception of our Ménage à Trois Sangria Chardonnay, most of the white wines have an aroma that is less bold, so a taller, or shorter, more narrow wine glass bowl, with a smaller aroma collecting area will fit your white wine needs divinely. Plus, wine glasses with smaller bowls help your white wines keep their chill.

Thin Lips Vs. Thick Lips.
Normally we would agree that we prefer when our lips are voluptuous. However, on wine glasses, we must agree, thinner lips are better, less glass to get in the way of your Ménage à Trois Sangria drinking experiences and experiments.
 
Wine Glass Therapy is Over for the Day.
See, picking out wine glasses which pair best with the types of wines you’ll be drinking out of them is a superb way to go. Just get some small, medium and large bowl wine-glasses, and you’ll be all set for those expected, and unexpected, Ménage à Trois Sangria wine drinking moments.
