Summer Cocktails by Voga
With little skiffs of snow still on the ground I long for nothing more than the long hot days of summer. They are coming and quickly. I love sitting on the porch with a nice refreshing cocktail and here are two Summer Cocktails by Voga to get you in the mood for the summer. One of my favorite wines for the summer time. Light and refreshing on it’s own but jazzed up in a cocktail, even better. Enjoy!!
Voga produces a number of outstanding everyday wines. These Italian creations range from a light and fruit Pinot Grigio to a bubbly Prosecco. They also produce a gorgeous Rose and a full body red that is a complex, finely balanced, and food friendly.
