"Sparks will fly when we’re together."

A Tantalizing Take on the Infamous Mimosa

Weekends are a thing to behold, if for nothing other than the rousing affair that is brunch. A bold brunch, mind you, will bring you even greater pleasure when paired with a divine drink recipe. Sure, you could keep it classic with crowd-pleasing mimosas. But why, when there’s so much more to experiment with?

Pairing our Prosecco with the subtle sensation of a luscious vanilla bean ice cream will add a bit of soft texture to your mimosa and give it an overall bouncy new profile. Take a peek at this frisky twist on a classic from Bread Booze Bacon.

Breakfast on a Night In

Prosecco

"Sparks will fly when we’re together."

Breakfast on a Night In

We’ve all been there. Dinnertime is approaching, yet for some odd reason you’re desiring breakfast delights: thick-cut bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese, and maybe even some stone-ground grits. You tell your significant other or friend of this craving, and the breakfast hunger spreads like wildfire. Soon, you’ll be naming off your favorites: pancakes and waffles, baked egg dishes and quiches, and a juicy slab of country ham is even thrown into the mix. And you come to the realization that you must have breakfast for dinner.

A few of our tricks can make this the most anticipated breakfast for dinner session you’ve ever concocted. So, before you get cracking, we’ve got a few pairing suggestions that are sure to satisfy.

Prosecco & Purple Confetti Pancakes

• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 box Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix

• 3 eggs
• 2 1/3 cups milk
• 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles
• 2 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
• 4 drops of red food coloring

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cake mix. Set aside.
2. In another bowl, mix together the cherry juice, food coloring, oil, eggs, and milk.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until everything is combined.
4. Fold in the sprinkles, which is the most important part.
5. Heat a griddle to about 275ºF (or medium heat). If you’re using a medium pan, set to medium heat. Spray the griddle or pan with non-stick cooking spray.
6. Ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle or pan, and cook the pancakes for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove pancake, set aside, and repeat until you’re all out of batter.

Chardonnay & Chorizo Burrito
Recipe:
• 4 10-inch flour tortillas
• 1 large baking potato, peeled, and cut into small cubes
• 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

3. Dice ¼ cup green peppers and scallions.
4. Next, add chorizo and green peppers to a large skillet on medium-high heat. Break up meat and cook all the way through, about 5 minutes.
5. Add the scallions, stir well, and cook for another 30 seconds. Transfer chorizo to a bowl and set aside.
6. Clean or use a different skillet, and then pour in the olive oil on medium heat.
7. Whisk together the eggs in a medium-sized bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the eggs to skillet and cook. Don’t forget to stir the eggs while they cook, until they’re softly scrambled. Immediately transfer eggs to a second bowl and set aside.
8. Warm tortillas in skillet until pliable, about 20 seconds.
9. Divvy up the potatoes, chorizo, eggs, cheese, cilantro, salsa, and avocado between the four warmed tortillas. Roll the tortillas into a burrito shape.

Cocktail Remix: The Negroni Sbagliato

Quite possibly one of the greatest “mistakes” in bartending history, the Negroni Sbagliato came about when a busy bartender in Milan accidentally grabbed the prosecco instead of the traditional gin while mixing a Negroni. Subsequently, the bar patron ended up loving the drink, and thus, the Negroni Sbagliato (translation: the Negroni Mistake) was born. Adapted from a recipe by The Straight Up, we’ve made our own accidental apéritif using Ménage à Trois Prosecco. Cheers to making mistakes!

June Advice: A Cancer Comes Out of Her Shell

This is 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…
I’m a Cancer in every sense of the stereotype: hard-shelled on the outside, soft and sensitive on the inside. Lately, I feel as though my tough exterior is holding me back from romantic relationships. Opening up isn’t easy for me, as I’ve been hurt in the past. How do I let down my guard to show potential partners that deep down, I’m more whole-hearted than hard-headed?

…We Tell
Like the age-old adage, never judge a wine by its bottle (or is it a book by its cover?), we’d never judge a Cancer by its shell! We know that deep down, you’re as sweet and caring as they come. Since you say you’ve been hurt before, you might start by opening up slowly but surely, giving others a peek at what lies beneath. No risk, no reward!

In fact, you’re not so far off from Ménage à Trois Midnight—a deep blend that surprises with every tasting note. Our most intense expression yet, this varietal is bursting with dusky aromas, an extraordinarily deep color, and rich, ripe black fruit—but you’d never know it just checking out the bottle. So when it comes to romantic endeavors, do like this mysterious red varietal: uncork and slowly pour your heart out. The gradual reveal of your softer side will be simply irresistible to those around you.

How to Host a Pizza & Prosecco Party

Pizza and Prosecco: an unexpected pairing, or the perfect match? While not your typical food and wine combination, this effervescent mix of high and low, of glamour and comfort makes for a grown-up pizza party you won’t soon forget. With it’s fizzy finish and crisp fruit flavors, Ménage à Trois Prosecco is a surprisingly versatile varietal that will complement everything from veggie toppings down to the cheesy mozzarella base. Want to get planning? Grab a few bottles of bubbly and create a DIY pizza station. You’ll need:

Dough: Have the dough ready to go in personal-sized batches. Either pre-make your own the day before, or scoop up a few store-bought pizza crusts.

Sauce: Traditional tomato is always a hit, but feel free to offer up a few modern options such as pesto or even barbecue sauce.

Toppings: Now for the fun part! Create a spread with options in three categories: cheeses, veggies, and meats. Some fun pairings? Spinach, artichoke, and parmesan. Chicken, BBQ sauce, and bleu cheese. Sun-dried tomatoes, arugula and olives.

Let guests create their own concoctions—keep it classic or get as crazy as you’d like! Make a toast to the most unique culinary creation of the evening.

WINE ATTITUDE

This wine is made in an alluring fruit-forward style, so if you’re a little shy, our Pinot Noir will make the first move. The romance begins with pretty violet aromas that lead to a symphony of juicy black cherry flavors with hints of toast on the palate, and to finish, a silky smooth embrace that would make Casanova jealous. You’ll swoon, you’ll sigh–this is L-O-V-E.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Fancy a little splendor in the glass? Turn down the lights, turn up the Barry White and uncork the Ménage à Trois Pinot Noir. When it comes to affairs of the palate, we’ve always felt that three was much more fun than one, so we played matchmaker and brought together grapes from three distinctive California wine growing regions known for producing exquisite Pinot Noir. Clarksburg grapes add bright flavors and a lovely perfume. North Coast grapes add silkiness, and Central Coast fruit rounds out the blend with beautiful complexity. Enhanced with French and American Oak, our Pinot Noir is sure to have you waxing poetic. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
