Celebrate the Irish This St. Patrick’s Day With This Corned Beef & Cabbage Sandwich

California Red Wine

"We promise you a luscious love affair."

Celebrate the Irish This St. Patrick’s Day With This Corned Beef & Cabbage Sandwich

In the late 19th century, courageous Irish immigrants braved the choppy oceans and unknown world as they made their way to America. These daring souls brought with them many customs from their homeland, as well as forged their own. It was around then that the traditional Corned Beef & Cabbage dish was cemented in Irish-American culture.
 
Ménage à Trois is honoring the spirit of these adventurers with a Corned Beef & Cabbage Sandwich. With layers of juicy meat, this is a recipe that you can really sink your teeth into. It pairs deliciously with a glass of California Red and a desire to live boldly.

Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 Cups Cabbage, Finely Shredded
- 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon Horseradish
- 1 Teaspoon Caraway Seeds
- 3 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
- 6 Slices Marbled Rye Bread
- 6 Slices Deli Corn Beef
- 3 Slices Swiss Cheese
- Butter for Grilling Sandwiches
 
Directions:
1. Blanch cabbage in lightly salted boiling water, just until crisp tender, about 1-2 minutes. Then, drain well; spread out on paper towel to eliminate extra moisture. Set aside.
2. Mix mayonnaise, horseradish, and caraway seeds. Blend this mixture with the shredded cabbage.
3. Mix mustards together, then spread on the unbuttered side of the bread slices; then top each of the three slices with about 1/4 cup cabbage mixture, then 2 slices corned beef, then 1 slice Swiss cheese.
4. Top each sandwich with the second slice of bread; butter the top of the second bread slice.
5. Cook the sandwiches on a griddle or sandwich press until browned (3-4 minutes).
6. Flip and grill the other side until browned and the cheese is melted.
7. And serve!

Ignite Your Night with a Little Spontaneity with this Date Night Jar

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same old routine when going on dates. Whether it’s been a long day at the office or you’re just running on empty with ideas for the evening, our Date Night Jar solves this dilemma.

On a cold winter day or evening, sit down with your significant other and add a spark of creativity and chance to your relationship by brainstorming a bunch of ideas with your significant other. Whether you come up with ideas as a team or you each write your own down, selecting a future night’s date will build anticipation and excitement.

We do have one rule to abide by: when drawing a card from the jar, you must do whatever it says.

Here’s how to make your own.
What you need:
- Glass jar or bowl
- Construction paper
- Scissors
- String

How to make:
1. Decorate the outside of your jar or bowl to your preference.
2. Sit down with your partner and write down as many date ideas that come to mind.
3. Once finished, roll up the paper and tie them shut with some string.
4. Place all your ideas in the jar and set it aside until a night needs a little jumpstart.

Date Night Idea Suggestions:
- Go see the highest-rated feature film at your local movie theater, no matter what the movie is about.
- Take a local art class.
- Sign up for a cooking class together.
- Go for drinks at a local landmark.
- Visit a museum to see a featured exhibit.
- Make homemade pizzas.
- Go for a sunset picnic.

When Opposites Attract, which Side will You Find Yourself on? The Saint or the Sinner Cocktail

Our Saint & Sinner Cocktails are two opposites that attract, yet each are equal in bursting flavorful sensations. To celebrate all the romantic joys of couple-hood, we are pairing two cocktails that differ in flavor profiles and tasting notes yet complement one another in multiple ways.

Start mixing your Saint and Sinner cocktails and let the night decide on which side you reside.

  • Add 1 cup ice to shaker and pour in Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay.
  • Cover shaker with lid and shake vigorously for 1 minute.
  • Pour into tall glass, garnish with pineapple, lime, and sprig of rosemary. Serve and enjoy.

The Sinner:

Add pink to your cheeks with the Sinner cocktail. We’ll flirt with sassy red fruits in our California Red Blend and tickle with tangy grapefruit spritzes in this irresistible, refreshing cocktail.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-2 teaspoons honey or sugar (optional)
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • crushed ice
  • juice of 1/2 a grapefruit
  • 2 ounces Ménage Red Blend

Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a Night Filled with Tasty Dumplings and Ménage à Trois California Red

As the Chinese New Year approaches, we’re kicking off this Year of the Dog with a delectable wine and food pairing. The arrival of the new moon on Feb. 16 officially commences the start of this annual celebration.

The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 houses, with each house being celebrated for a full year rather than a month. This year, the Year of the Dog, celebrates our friends that are honest, loyal, and filled with integrity. You may also find yourself with a bit of luck if a dog is in your vicinity. If you’re born in the years listed below, then this is your year to shine.
- 1970
- 1982
- 1994
- 2006
- 2018

So let’s kick off this lunar celebration the right way, with Chinese dumplings and a glass of Ménage à Trois California Red under the stars. The savory flavors of delicious chicken dumplings and the rich full-bodied notes of our California Red will surely complete a night meant for the Dog.
