I’ve partnered with Bordeaux Wines to bring you this special Valentine-themed cocktail. The white wine I used is from the Château Respide-Médeville located in Graves, France, and the varietal is Blanc Sec. This large region is located 30 miles southeast of Bordeaux, France and is known for its red and white wine.

Bordeaux white wines are great for mixing in your cocktails because they tend to be dryer, fresher, with an ever so lightly fragrant finish, that balances well with citrus juices.

The Château Respide-Médeville Blanc 2017 is a special bottle because it’s a white Bordeaux blend consisting of 50% Semillon, 48% Sauvignon, 2% Muscadelle grapes. It’s aromatic and fruity with flavors of lychees, grapefruit, and a spicy element from new wood. On the palate, it’s fresh, lightly fruity, and not too overpowering, so it mixes really well with other ingredients.

If you’re looking for some other Valentine’s Day cocktails, I recommend the Frozen Berry Tea Bellini or the Better Than Roses Kombucha Cocktail!

Aside from this delicious wine, I love making these rose petal ice cubes! It’s a simple way to take your cocktail to the next level, and they’re easy-to-make too! All you have to do is add your rose petals to an ice cube tray and freeze for 5-6 hours.
