Watermelon-White Balsamic Sangria


Warmer weather has us looking forward to a cool, refreshing sangria at the end of a long work week. This recipe features our Fondo di Trebbiano® White Balsamic Glaze, which is a reduction of white balsamic vinegar and and white trebbiano grape must. This exquisite product is made using local Italian ingredients and bottled at the source, then imported exclusively for Sid Wainer & Son.

In this cocktail, the vinegar helps add brightness without making the cocktail too sweet overall, allowing the fresh watermelon to truly shine.

White Balsamic and Cranberry Kir Royale


You might be asking yourself, "what on earth is a Kir?". Trust us, it's not a typo. A Kir is a classic French wine cocktail that dates back to the mid twentieth century. The original recipe calls for white wine and crème de casis, which evolved into the Kir Royale, made with champagne. Our recipe is a holiday-themed take on the Kir Royale, which is as refreshing as it is stunning. Serve this as an aperitif at your next gathering this social season.


White Balsamic and Cranberry Kir Royale
