I haven’t always been a wine connoisseur. I used to be strictly a Zin girl when I’d order wine with dinner or buy a bottle to enjoy at home. Then, I happened on Moscato, and I was hooked. Moscato is light-bodied and fruity, so it is the perfect wine for those just starting to sample wine.

Now that I’ve inserted our disclaimer, let me tell you about the cocktail I whipped up! I’m sharing the recipe for my Strawberry Moscato Chiller and it is delicious. Think, frozen wine cooler with a little kick.

Moscato is one of my absolute favorite kinds of wine. Give me a glass of Moscato vino and some cheese or veggies to munch on, put in a good movie, and I can kick back and relax.
