Recipe: Not Your Momma's Mimosa

Not Your Momma's Mimosa!

Looking for the ultimate cool and refreshing twist on mimosa? We created a fresh recipe with tropical pineapple and added a New Mexico twist with fresh green chile!

Ingredients:

Place the fruit and green chile into a fruit diffuser, alternating each one, then place the infuser into a gallon container. Pour in half of the orange juice and pineapple into the container, then add one bottle of Enchanted Moscato wine from Enchantment Vineyards. Add the rest of the juice, then allow the mixture to sit for several hours or overnight in your refrigerator.

When you're ready to serve, pour over ice and add a splash of New leaf Hard Seltzer for carbonation and kick. Garnish your glass with a sliver of green chile and a piece of pineapple.

This summer, we're offering our award-winning Enchanted Moscato on special. Buy three bottles and get a fourth free! Stock up for all of your weekend celebrations and wine cocktails!

Summer Rosé Punch by Enchantment Vineyards

Summer is the best season to enjoy a chilled glass of rosé. Rosé food pairings are also the epitome of summer cuisine, with dishes like grilled pizza, seafood, and light salads. We tasked Donna, one of Enchantment's most talented mixologists, with coming up with a special rosé punch recipe.

Enchantment Rosé Punch

- 1 bottle Sunset Rosé
- 1/2-cup to 1 cup frozen Limeade
- 33 oz bottle of club soda
- 1 Liter of Sprite 

Depending on how much of a citrus twist you'd like to have, add more or less Limeade. Mix all ingredients together, then serve on ice. Garnish with fresh sprigs of mint and a strawberry.

Cheers, and happy August!

Sangria Showdown: Part 3

Sangria with a New Mexico twist, you ask? Why of course! This week we are featuring a collaboration of our very own Lisa Jaynes and Samantha Black, two Enchantment wine experts and budding mixologists who teamed up to deliver perhaps our most unique sangria yet. Have they achieved a fine balance of spicy meets sweet? You be the judge.

watermelon and jalapeño slicesPicante Sandia Sangria

  • 1 bottle Pinot Noir
  • 1/2 chopped Jalapeño
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 C Strawberry Juice
  • 1 cup Watermelon Juice
  • 1 cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 cup Watermelon Chunks
  • Top off with Sandia Watermelon Cider

Combine all ingredients except for cider and let sit overnight to extract flavors of the fruit and jalapeño. Stir well before refrigerating to dissolve the brown sugar. Serve over ice, adding Sandia Watermelon Cider. Enjoy the subtle flavor of jalapeño mingling with strawberry and watermelon, preferably with views of the mountains!

Sangria Showdown: Part 1

Ice cold glass of Sangria with lemon and lime garnish at Enchantment VineyardsDuring the hot summer months in New Mexico, our favorite beverage shifts from the elegant simplicity of wine to the traditional Spanish concoction of sangria. We've decided to host an informal competition between the family and staff of Enchantment Vineyards. First up is June, the matriarch of Enchantment. Known to be a master mixologist, June's recipe for Enchanting Sangria is sure to be a hit on a hot summer day by the pool.

Enchanting Sangria

  • 1 bottle of Enchantment Vineyards 2015 Pinot Noir
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 1/2 cup Cocktail Artist Triple Sec (non-alcoholic)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 to 2 cup Sandia Pineapple cider (add just before serving)
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 8 maraschino cherries

Mix the first six ingredients together, stirring well until the sugar is completely dissolved. Next, add the sliced fruit and cherries. Refrigerate the muddled fruits overnight, then prior to serving, add the cider for a fizzy kick to the experience. It's okay if you experience the urge to flamenco dance.

This July, we will be featuring a different sangria recipe each week, each making use of our wine of the month, our 2015 Pinot Noir. Save 10% on all bottles of this uniquely delicate wine either online or in our tasting room.
