LaCrescent is a tough little grape that found it’s roots in Minnesota and made a happy transition to the former cornfields at Maize Valley. It produces a wine that’s semi-sweet with apricot tones and citrusy flavors or grapefruit and tangerine throughout. Wines with similar flavor profiles are wonderful choices for pairing with (and taming) spicy foods.
Here’s what puts the “happy” in Happy Hour! It’s a completely refreshing way to welcome guests. Be sure to seek out Ohio brands of gin, such as Watershed Distillery where the classic juniper notes are subdued. If you’re new to mixology, “muddle” simply means to press or pin the ingredients against the side of glass with the back of a spoon. This releases the flavors of the ingredients to bind with the spirits.
