It’s time to break out those cozy drinks by the fire!

The Musto Crush Crew loves a boozy cocktail and we wanted to share a few of our favorite holiday recipes. Try one, try all, or add your own spin to these delicious holiday drinks.

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine has been called “The Winemaker’s Hot Toddy”. It delivers delicious wine flavors with a hint of spice. A great drink for the winter months.

Autumn Sangria

We tried a delicious fall Sangria recipe and it delivered! We loved it so much we are making it for our next winter party. Give it a try, Sangria isn’t just for the summer time.

Coquito

A Latin spin on eggnog, we are obsessed with this creamy liquor drink. Notes of nutmeg and a little zing of rum will put you in the holiday spirit.

While Empathy’s Rosé is a crowd pleaser pairing just by itself, there’s nothing wrong with spicing things up! We’ve included Empathy’s recipe for their Rosé Autumn Sangria, and we’ve included some tasty parings to go along with it.

Musto Wine Grape’s Rosé Autumn Sangria Pairings

  • Butternut Squash Soup. The cinnamon and apple cider will go especially well with this savory autumn soup, which often times has apples and cinnamon blended in. Try Musto Crush Crew’s Autumn Butternut Squash Soup!
  • Pear, Blue Cheese and Candied Pecan Salad. The crisp pear, the creamy and salty blue cheese, and the sweet nutty pecan flavors perfectly compliment this sangria recipe.
  • Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Lemon and Pecorino. Brussels sprouts, like most brassica, can be a difficult food to pair with. Using this autumn sangria recipe, with all of its spicy and fresh fruit additions, is an excellent route to go.
