Four Ways We're Loving Melon Mint Moscato

Oliver Winery's new Melon Mint Moscato in a Frosé cocktail, on table with melon and tacos

Few things feel quite as refreshing as a cool, juicy, vibrant slice of watermelon on a hot summer day. The instant hydration, the subtle sweetness, the fresh bliss of every bite. It’s an experience hard to come by all year round, but we might’ve pulled it off. Our delightfully refreshing (and new!) Melon Mint Moscato captures all of that any time of year.

Inspired by the classic mojito, Melon Mint is bursting with ripe melon, and hints of lime, mint, and cucumber. It’s a ready-to-drink-cocktail in a bottle. Uncork, pour, and treat yourself to a sip of self-care. We love this light, fruity wine over ice, but in case you like to experiment, we’ve got some recipes that we'd give two "bottoms up." See what we did there...

We can’t help but recommend a delicious pairing to go with these cocktail picks.

Pulled pork street tacos work with any of these easy-to-make mixers. Full spread: a simple pulled pork, cilantro lime cabbage slaw, Mexican blend cheese, and a little drizzle of barbecue sauce. Don't forget the chips and guac. Simple, fresh, and delicious. Just like Melon Mint Moscato!

The savory pork and barbecue are a perfect contrast to the fresh slaw, which mirrors the flavors in the wine. It’s not too heavy, so you'll finish the meal feeling happy and refreshed —and ready for another glass. Cheers!
