Carnaval cocktail & bottle - Cranberry Sauced Oct. 2013


When the Duck Dynasty beards launch their own moscato product you know it’s a “thing.”

But rather than try the reality TV stars’ brand, we’re sticking with the good stuff, Carnaval from Brazil. It’s alight, refreshing sparkling wine that is good anytime. Available in Brut, Moscato and Moscato red, Carnaval comes from the oldest vineyard in Brazil (Cooperativa Vinícola Aurora) and won a gold medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition this year.

With the eyes of the world now turning to Brazil for the World Cup and the next Summer Olympics in Rio, it’s time to get your “Brazil sexy” on!

Start now with this recipe which is good for Turkey day (or any Friday.)

CRANBERRY SAUCED (perfect ice breaker for any holiday gathering)

  • 1 oz. Gin
  • .5 oz. Lemon Juice
  • Teaspoon of Cranberry Preserves

Shake ingredients in mixing cup, strain into champagne cocktail glass, top with chilled Carnaval Moscato White, garnish with orange peel or spear of cranberries.

Carnaval runs about $10 – the Brut couple bucks more. Happy hols!
