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.

The Saint: 

The Saint cocktail mesmerizes you with sweet and tangy flavors as we’ve added pineapple and lime to complement our lush, tropical fruit-tasting notes .

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lime (sliced or quartered)
  • 2 tsp. turbinado (cane sugar)
  • 3 ounces Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay
  • 1 cup ice
  • Fresh sliced lime, pineapple and rosemary for garnish

 

HOW TO MAKE:

  • In a metal shaker, muddle the fresh limes with sugar until sugar is dissolved and fruit macerated.
  • 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
  • sparkling water, for topping

 

HOW TO MAKE:

  • In a glass, muddle 1-2 teaspoons sugar or honey (if using), the quartered lime, and mint leaves.
  • Add the ice, the grapefruit juice and Ménage Red Blend; gently mix to combine.
  • Pour sparkling water over top.
  • Enjoy!

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.

Our Ménage à Trois’ Tantalizing Game Night of “Shadows of Mystery” is a Feast For The Senses

Ménage à Trois is making game night enticing again. Inspired by Venetian Masquerades, where identities are hidden behind masks, adding mysterious excitement to the evening, the Ménage à Trois’ game, “Shadows of Mystery” is a Feast For The Senses. It keeps the identity of select objects hidden in the shadows, so you never know what to expect or what you’ll experience. Players use a blindfold to take away their sight, leaving them to use taste, touch, smell, and sounds to discover what objects lay in front of them.  

Can you recognize the sweet burst of flavor from a blueberry by taste alone? Or a strawberry just by its aroma? 
Does wine have its own distinctive splash as it cascades from the bottle to the glass? 

It is up to the challenger to pick the items for each player to attempt to reveal. Allow your other senses to be heightened by the intoxicating effects of daring to enter the unknown. 

Wherever the fire of the night takes you, make sure to bring Ménage à Trois wine along for the ride. You never know what sensual discoveries will be revealed when you’re playing our Ménage à Trois “Shadows of Mystery” game.

With these Smoked Cocktail Garnishes, you can fill your home with the sensations of a roasting fire without any firewood. 
The smoking garnishes add a feel of luxuriousness to your cocktail. They will bathe the room in a delightful warm aroma 
while infusing your drink with a hint of earthiness. Use a smoking sprig of rosemary or a stick of cinnamon with Ménage à Trois’ 
Apple Cider Gold Cocktail for a sinfully indulgent concoction. The sweet spice of the Gold mixes flawlessly with the Apple Cider 
and toasty flavors of the smoking garnishes. 

Keep your guests, and your senses, satisfied with this irresistible cocktail pairing.  
We won’t blame you if you choose to keep this secret recipe all to yourself.

YOUR EXPLORATION OF SMOKED GARNISHING STARTS HERE: 

Rosemary Sprig or Thyme Sprig 
Rosemary’s earthy tones compliment the full-bodied flavor and oak notes of a Chardonnay. While thyme works wonders with sweeter, fruitier wines. 
How to Do It: Ignite the herb, blow it out and dunk it into your drink. If the herb is too green and fresh, it might take extra effort to catch on fire.

Orange Peel 
Lavish your bold wine cocktail with charred-fruit aroma and delicious, smoky, burnt orange oils. Note: These oils happen to be flammable, please be mindful when trying this.
How to Do It: Cut a small-sized piece of zest from an orange, light a match and express the peel’s oils over the match and into the drink. It is best to discard the expressed rind rather than putting into the cocktail.

Cinnamon Sticks 
Dropped into a wine cocktail or sangria, a flamed cinnamon stick creates a heavenly, homemade pie bouquet and a sensual cinnamon flavor.
How to Do It:  Light the cinnamon stick on fire, then drop it into a drink to extinguish the flame.

Cedar or Sandalwood 
Infuse any wine cocktail with a warm, barbeque flavor and a delicate wooded fragrance by smoking cedar or sandalwood chips and extinguish them with a glass.
How to Do It: Create a small pile of wood chips on a fire-proof surface, then light the pile on fire. Smother the burning pile with a wine glass and allow the glass to fill with smoke as you prepare your wine cocktail. When the wine cocktail is ready, lift the wine glass and pour the drink into it.
