May Advice: Gemini Gone Wild

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…
By day, I’m a reserved professional with a penchant for being cautious and composed. By night, however, my Gemini alter ego runs wild. I become an obnoxiously outgoing risk taker with a flair for the dramatic. Recently, I spent a rambunctious evening out with colleagues—and now I’m worried they’ll never see me as the quiet and clearheaded worker that I am. How do I balance my buttoned-up side with my closeted desire to get a little wild and crazy?

…We Tell
At Ménage à Trois, we’re all for exploring the depths of every flavor profile—that goes for wines and personalities alike. As a Gemini, you’re bound to grapple with your sign’s signature split personality. And we say, embrace it! Like a fine wine, you are a unique blend with subtle nuances that stand out depending on what you pair them with. And as for your coworkers? They’ll come to respect your exciting duality—whether your conservative or kooky side comes out, you’ll always keep them on their toes.

WINE ATTITUDE

Are you looking for a little excitement? Something out of the ordinary? A foreign fling, if you will? Then look no further! An exotic adventure awaits—no passport required—just a corkscrew and a couple of glasses. Experience the pleasure of Argentina in every sip of our lush Malbec. Though it breaks our rule of three, it is a Ménage à Trois in style and substance—an indulgent, delicious dalliance in every way.

VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

A native of France, Malbec is one of the traditional blending grapes used to add oomph to Bordeaux blends. Once in the shadow of its more famous cousins, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec finally found its true home—and the praise it deserves—in the warm, sunny climate of Argentina’s famous Mendoza region where the varietal can reach its fullest potential. Here, the small, dark, juicy grapes express an intensity befitting their adopted home, which our winemakers translate beautifully in every bottle. Made in a lush, balanced style with jammy flavors kissed with a whisper of toasted oak, our Malbec will sweep you off your feet in a passionate embrace.

Get the Most Out of Leftover Wine

When it comes to wine, we’re all about the waste not, want not mentality. But how long does an open bottle actually last? The moment the cork comes out, air begins the oxidation process and prompts the varietal’s naturally present bacteria to turn the sugars into grape juice or the alcohol into acetic acid. This is what gives spoiled wine its unpalatable vinegar odor and flavor.

Knowing when to toast or when to toss that uncorked Ménage à Trois Cabernet or Rosé can mean the difference between enjoying every last sip or experiencing that unpleasant, sour aftertaste. To avoid the latter, we’ve put together a few helpful tips based on the freshness timelines for different varietals, plus other uses for leftover bottles so that not a drop of precious wine goes to waste.

Sparkling Wine
• Good for: 1 - 3 days
• Store: in the fridge with a sparkling wine stopper
• Use Every Last Drop: by making a Ménage à Trois Prosecco face mask! Mix one part bubbly with one part cream and two parts pre-made clay mask. Apply to face and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off.

Light White, Sweet White & Rosé Wine
• Good for: 5 - 7 days
• Store: in the fridge with a cork or stopper
• Use Every Last Drop: to remove grease stains. Mix whites with baking soda, pour onto the stain, and let soak before wiping away.

Full-Bodied White Wine
• Good for: 3 - 5 days
• Store: in the fridge with a cork or stopper
• Use Every Last Drop: to remove red wine stains. That’s right, pouring a little white on red and letting it soak will help get out stubborn spots.

Red Wine
• Good for: 3 - 5 days
• Store: in a cool, dark place with a cork
• Use Every Last Drop: to clean veggies. Mixed with water, red wine will help kill bacteria found on produce.

White Wine Chills Out with These Serving Tips

Exotic vacations, five-star cuisines, pulse-racing romance—some things are best served hot. White wine, however scintillating our Ménage à Trois varietals may be, is not one of them. To quickly cool off your Chardonnay or lower the temps on a Sauvignon Blanc, follow these tips before you sip for a speedy cool down.

Coddle Your Bottle
Wrap your varietal in a damp towel, then place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. The wetness from the towel will help cool down the bottle at a faster pace.

Drop In Frozen Grapes
Use frozen grapes in place of ice cubes to quickly cool off your glass without diluting the wine.

Dip Into an Ice Bath
Place your wine bottle in an ice bucket with ice water and a pinch of salt. The salt lowers the freezing temperature of the water, enabling the ice to cool off the water (and thus, your wine) at a quicker rate.

Temperature Tips
If you have more time to turn down the temps, follow this standard for white wine chilling: High acid wines should be stored at about 45 degrees, while rich whites should be stored closer to 50 degrees. If the temperature is too cold, the flavors will be suppressed. If it’s too warm, the acidity and minerals of the wine won’t be properly expressed.

April Taurus Advice: How to Be More Optimistic

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, it seems that my proverbial wine glass is always half empty. I feel like everything is running askew, and I can’t help but think negatively in every situation. How do I take a more optimistic approach to life in general?

...We Tell
Why have a half empty wine glass when it can be half full? Or better yet, overflowing? It’s quite alright to be pessimistic about certain things—some people might call that being realistic. But if you’re looking to channel good vibes, remember this: positivity is all about perspective. Pick a person, location or situation that you come in contact with, and write down three things about them that you like. Do this several times a day, and pretty soon your glass will indeed be overflowing with positive thoughts.

Cindy L.:  I have been creating digital art for several years, but just got serious about it about 1 1/2 years ago.

Ménage a Mojito: A Sweet-Talking Wine Spritzer That's Sugar-Free.

Sauvignon Blanc

"Ours will be a fun and flirtatious start."

Ménage a Mojito: A Sweet-Talking Wine Spritzer That's Sugar-Free.

Spring is fast approaching, and those of us who are partial to winter, since it’s our excuse to cozy up and hibernate, are equally roused by the coming warmth of spring. Like the blossoming flowers and birds of song, we feel free to reveal our true colors, and share our desire to make some noise and mingle again.

The renewed sense of bliss that spring brings on is as exciting as it is enticing, not only because of the obvious reasons of shedding layers and showing off our beloved Boho Spring wear, but because we’ve been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for these sun filled days to arrive, now that they have, we have a surprise for you. Our first ever, splendid for spring, Mojito Wine Spritzer. It happens to be sugar-free, and under 100 calories—which pretty much means it’s guilt-free.

When our Ménage à Trois Sauvignon Blanc, with its vivid flavors that awaken your senses, gets together with the refreshing mint magic of the Mojito, not only do sparkling sparks fly, but all at once, you know, spring has arrived.

Mojito Wine Spritzer
Author: Lauren Kelly Nutrition

  • 4 oz. white wine (I used sauvignon blanc)
  • 4 oz. seltzer (or club soda)

  • Gently muddle the mint leaves with stevia and lime juice.

How to Host a Midnight Easter Egg Hunt 

Bring back the magic of Easter with an adults-only egg hunt this weekend. When the clock strikes midnight, head outside for a bit of grown-up fun — think glow-in-the-dark eggs, dark chocolate, along with other no-kids-allowed treats, and of course our Ménage à Trois Midnight Red Wine Blend — enough to share with all mischief-making friends.

Pre-Hunt Toast
Kick off the night with a toast (or three). Your guests might get thirsty on their egg hunt, so keep several bottles of your favorite Ménage à Trois wine on hand.

Glow-in-the-Dark Eggs
Pick up plastic eggs that illuminate at night. Glow-in-the-dark stickers also work — simply place them on regular plastic eggs. 

Goodies for Grown-Ups 
Fill your plastic eggs with adults-only treats. Try dark chocolates, booze-flavored jelly beans, money, costume jewelry or whatever other playful prize you can think of.

Light Up the Night 
Light the way (and help everyone find their eggs) by passing out flashlights and glow sticks to your guests.
