The year is almost halfway through and it's a great time to check in on what all you've accomplished so far in 2018. For me, I'm on track with a lot of my goals (#summerbody is almost here) and have faltered a bit on others (three for five on the books I planned to read by now). I traveled a bit recently and have more exciting trips still on the horizon. There's no shortage of wedding, birthday or baby celebrations on my calendar this year and I'm loving every minute of it. Work has been busy but rewarding because I'm learning much and preparing to get another certification this fall. And I'm happy with where the blog is right now--exciting partnerships, mastering more of the techie stuff, and hearing great feedback from y'all!
There's a lot of activity going on at the moment and much of it is cause to celebrate so I thought I'd share a new cocktail recipe I've been working on (and toasting with) to help inspire your summertime sipping. This lemon ginger bellini punch is made by the pitcher for easy entertaining and the taste is fresh, bright, and lightly sweet. You've got the flavors of aclassic bellini made with peach puree andChandelier® Italian Sparkling Wine, plus lemon and ginger for a fun twist. The Chandelier Sparkling Wine is light and crisp, and allows each element of the punch to shine. The tasting notes of the wine include apple, bright citrus, and ripe pear.
Especially in the summertime, I'm all about easy and this lemon ginger bellini punch is exactly that. It's a delicious party punch you can throw together for a last-minute gathering with girlfriends or make by the glass to unwind with after work. Did I mention today is National Wine Day? 🙂 Bubbles automatically elevate any occasion so I often incorporate them into drink recipes--from thisfizzy honey ginger lemonade to thesecitrus champagne sparklers. The Chandelier Sparkling Wine bottle is festive and fancy enough to light up any celebration but I love that it's also very affordable. I found it at my local grocery store and was able to pick up all the ingredients for my bellini punch in one fell swoop.
I'm having my girlfriends over tonight for wine and games and plan to whip up a batch of lemon ginger Bellini punch, as well. You can find more ways to sip, sparkle, and shine with Chandelier Sparkling Wine here and check out all of my cocktail recipes here. Thanks so much for reading!
