New Twists for Cherry Moscato Cocktails

Oliver Winery Cherry Moscato uses refreshingly real Montmorency cherries.

When a cherry on top of a sundae grows up, it becomes a splash of Cherry Moscato topping off your cocktail—any day of the week. Our fruit wine’s touch of fizz and fresh flavor from real Montmorency cherry juice make favorites sparkle anew. Cherry Moscato is easy to play around with because it’s smooth and just a little tart and won’t dramatically alter a recipe.

Try adding it to any drink with cherry (or one compatible with cherry—you’re the bartender!) or substituting it for soda water. Here are some examples.

Sour Cherry Bellini
2 cups Montmorency cherry juice (or any tart cherry juice)
1/4 cup sugar
1 oz. each of fresh tangerine and lime juices
1 oz. Prosecco
One 750-milliliter bottle plus 2 cups chilled Oliver Winery Cherry Moscato

Combine juice and sugar in a saucepan over moderate heat until the sugar dissolves . Chill the cherry juice in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. In a large pitcher, combine the cherry juice with the tangerine and lime juices. Slowly pour in the Cherry Moscato. Add the Prosecco. Serve over ice.
