A Chardonnay A Day

08.14.14


LaCrema_Chardonnay_final.jpg

Just like that key piece in your closet that goest with e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, a fabulous bottle of wine can be just as eminent. A go-to bottle should be able to compliment your most basic of pedestrian nibbles and be the cherry on top of something delicious + elegant. Whether serving bites that are salty + savory, sweet or tart - a balanced + veracious bottle of Chardonnay can take mundane fare to the top of the chart. Looking for said stalwart bottle of Chard?! In waltzes La Crema… see that wasn’t so hard! They’ve launched a fabulous new program in which they’ve coined the ‘Virtual Vintner’ - an online wine experience that formulates a new vino variety based off crowd-sourced input + popular vote and thus create + deliver! This new virtual wine making concept taps the minds of their registered online community - they’ll create a new custom wine based off the popular findings, making it a rather unique + exciting opportunity!  Just think of all the fun you could have with a crowd pleasing, custom wine to pair with brunch, lunch and dinner?! And knowing you played a part in the creation would most definitely make you feel like a winner! I know I wouldn’t mind having a fabulous Chardonnay a day - it would certainly turn my monday through friday into a week long soirée!

BEER-ritas!

07.01.14


BEER-ritas.jpg

Theres nothing more American that a big batch of Margaritas - especially when you mix beer and exotic tequila! This year why not ring in America's birthday with something different - after all, it's better to be festive than obvious and deliberate! If you haven't already (gasp!) I beg you try - My Mrs. Señorita Spin / aka: BEER-ritas are next level, those in the know are keen to why! It's that fabby frozen Marg that we all know and love - but that extra beer float takes it from push to shove! Every time I whip up a batch - I get pummeled with praised and pats on the back. To say these are a summertime crowd pleaser would be a wild understatement - and I'd be a bold faced liar if I said they really weren't the GREATEST! This 4th, do your country proud and kick things up a notch - serve your patriots some frosty BEER-ritas + drop it like it's hot!

Senorita Spin Beer-rita

Ingredients
6 limes, juiced and zested
¼ c. agave nectar
