If it’s pink I drink. I may have been a few drinks in when I coined the phrase at a food and wine festival, but I really did mean every word. I am not a big fan of wine. Red wines taste like moldy feet to me, and white, well it’s OK, but I probably won’t be caught running out at 10 p.m. on a Friday night to pick up a bottle.
Pink wine, however, is a whole other story. It’s fruity and sweet and so wonderfully not like wine that, well it had me at hello.
I was fairly decided about my pink-only stand with wine when I stumbled on Barefoot Moscato Spumante Champagne at the wine festival. It was not pink, but I drank every last drop.
Barefoot Moscato Spumante champagne has the perfect blend of bubbles. The flavor is sweet and fruity unlike most champagne that I always felt had a sort of bland flavor. Skip dessert and try this wine. It would also be the perfect accompaniment to cheese and crackers in my professional non-wine person opinion. The saltiness will offset a bit of the sweet and compliment the evening wonderfully.
My favorite part of this delightful drink is that it only cost $8.99. For that price inviting a few friends over for an evening of bubbly has never been more accessible. Or you could just drink it all yourself. Trust me, I would completely understand.
