The Sparkling Wine-Gria is a lively and flavorful twist on the classic Sangria. Bursting with vibrant flavors and colorful fruit, this drink is perfect for sharing with friends at a summer barbecue or event. Start by pouring a bottle of Fiesta Winery's Texas Bubbles and Fiesta Winery Home Sweet Home into a large pitcher. Combine orange liquor and sliced fruits. Let the flavors meld together in the refrigerator for a few hours, allowing the fruit to infuse the wine. Serve over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint or a slice of lime for a truly refreshing experience.
Capture the essence of summer with a Frozen Peach Bellini, a delightful blend of peaches, wine, and a touch of elegance. Begin by freezing sliced, ripe peaches until they are firm. Once frozen, blend ice, peaches, and Peach Schnapps with Fiesta Winery's Happy Trails. Pour the mixture into champagne flutes or your favorite cocktail glasses, and top with a splash of Fiesta Winery Texas Summer Night. This icy treat is a perfect companion for brunch or a late afternoon gathering, offering a yummy pop of peach with a surprising punch of blueberry.
Combine the vibrant energy of a margarita with the refreshment of Fiesta Winery Texas Bubbles, and you get Fiesta's Bubble Margarita—a playful and bubbly twist on a beloved classic. Begin by rimming a glass with salt and filling it with ice. Squeeze fresh lime juice into the glass, and add a splash of Triple Sec and two ounces of your favorite white tequila. Top it off with a generous pour of Fiesta Winery's Texas Bubbles. Stir gently to combine the flavors, creating a delightful, fancy, and fun fusion. The Bubble Margarita is perfect for a summer Fiesta, offering a refreshing burst of flavor that will help you fight the summer heat.
