The Avaline cocktails you need to drink this spring

As the scent of orange and lemon blossoms linger in the warm, evening air, we are invigorated by the promise spring brings. Inspired by the fruitful buds we see on our neighborhood walks and the crisp, clean wines we have grown to love oh, so much, we wanted to share with you our favorite cocktail recipes. The perfect sips to take you from full-bellied brunches to lazy Sunday naps on the porch. 


A bottle of Avaline Sparkling with slices of oranges and freshly squeezed orange juice
A glass of the Avaline Sparkling mimosa

Up first, the Avaline mimosa (it’s a classic, how could we not?)

To us, a good mimosa is all about clean, delicious ingredients - that's why we start with Avaline Sparkling. Freshly squeezed orange is the way to go because the juice not only makes the flavor be more vibrant, but you will be sure your juice has no added sugar. We also recommend trying out different citruses to give a little variety to the classic mimosa.

What you’ll need:

Step-by-step:

Squeeze your own juice. Try using different citruses like grapefruit, tangerine, blood orange or even a tangelo. This will give your mimosa a little oomph to make it extra special. 

Top it off with as much Avaline Sparkling as you desire. When your wine is made with organic grapes, vegan-friendly and under 0.5g of sugars, you’re sure to sparkle too. (We think a mimosa should be mostly bubbles, but you do you.)

A bottle of Avaline White with a glass of lime and mint
A glass of Avaline White Sangrito

The Avaline White Sangrito

When in the mood for something irresistibly refreshing, we recommend the Avaline White Sangrito. It’s like a Mojito and Sangria had a baby, but with zero added sugar. Glug. Glug. Glug.

What you’ll need:

Step-by-step:

Ok, this might be one of the easiest (to make and drink) wine cocktails you can make and it is *sure* to please a crowd.

All you need to do add your sliced limes (we did about 3-4 limes), mint leaves and a bottle of Avaline White wine to a large jug (or jar) and let chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. 

Serve with ice, a slice of lime and mint leaves for garnish. 

A bottle of Avaline Rosé next to glass of pomegranate juice, grapefruit, blood oranges, and kumquat slices
Pomegranate Citrus Avaline Rosé Spritz

Pomegranate Citrus Avaline Rosé Spritz

High in antioxidants and vitamin C, the Pomegranate Citrus Avaline Rosé Spritz is practically begging to be enjoyed (and shared). This Spritz is as beautiful as it is delicious, so please share your photos with us so we can live vicariously through you. 

What you’ll need:

Step-by-step:

Combine pomegranate juice, grapefruit, blood oranges, kumquat slices, and Avaline Rosé in a large pitcher.

When ready to serve, top with sparkling water (to taste), a slice of grapefruit, and a couple kumquat halves.

These cocktails will *magically* disappear, especially when shared with close friends on that perfect spring afternoon.

Just clean, delicious wine™
Grapes in Good Company
Each of our ingredients is naturally derived and carefully considered.

Sulfites
A natural by-product of fermentation, sulfites stabilize wine. While wine can legally have up to 350ppm of sulfites, we add just enough to ensure it consistently tastes great, always keeping the total amount to under 100ppm. Present in our white, rosé, red, and sparkling.

Bentonite Clay
This naturally-occurring, ultra-fine clay binds to proteins in the wine, then is carefully filtered out to help maintain clarity. Present in our white, rosé, red, and sparkling.

Pea protein
A vegan, non-GMO, and non-allergenic solution for clarifying and stabilizing wine. Present in our rosé.

Cream of Tartar
A byproduct of winemaking, we add a bit to accelerate our cold-stabilization, a process that keeps crystals from forming in the wine. Present in our rosé.

Yeast
The difference between wine and grape juice, yeast kicks off the fermentation process. Our yeast is either indigenous to the grapes or certified for use in organic production. Present in our white and rosé.

Yeast Nutrient
A naturally-occurring product, our yeast nutrients assist with fermentation. Present in our rosé.
