This summer I have been working with the French Ministry of Agriculture to feature some of the products the organization represents, specifically cheese and wine (I know, my job is tough…). Fortunately for me, all of the products they have sent for me to try out have been delicious – all the wines have been inspiring to say the least.
I wanted to try out making a few cocktails with these gorgeous French wines, and one of my favorites so far is the Ginger Pinot Blanc Spritz, made with Trimbach Pinot Blanc. I found a lot of crisp pear and apple notes on this flavorful wine, so I wanted to pair it with ginger and mint to give it a bit of spice and herbal sweetness. I’m really into this spritz, it’s a great cocktail for sitting outside on a fall day – bright and refreshing with a hint of fall flavors.
