Clinging On As Summer Fades

Crack open and pour on the rocks or you can just drink it straight up from the can (an orange slice is suggested too but I’m fine as is). It’s warm gold with lovely active bouncing bubbles. Take a sniff and there’s mountain herbs, blossoms & other white flowers, that lovely dry vermouth smell joined with a pop of nose tickling citrus. Sipping and again that delicious vermouth taste and feel and again that mountain herby along with a touch of coriander/cloves, a drop of clover honey, and a red grapefruit juice splash.

Pairs with Cheez-Its: bleh

This is one fun cocktail to sip holding onto the last bits of summer while embracing the oncoming feel of fall. Álvaro & Ana selected the vermouth for this recipe from Bodegas Robles in Montilla-Moriles, who have been around since 1927, and organic since the 90s. There’s an extra gift that comes with their wines/vermouths…they have paired soundscapes which are  “not so much a prescription for the ‘right’ matching of wines and sounds as an invitation to open up to what your senses awaken in you.” So when you pop this can and let it roll around over your tongue, what do you feel?

Vacation In A Can!

Light gold (with some green) starlight with a tiny active pop pop pop! Curiously sniffing and there’s hazelnut & a bit of coconut that expands into creamy sherrylicious with citrus sparks that waft in and out. Sipping full and crisp apples/sherry, a nuttyiness (squirrel approved) like a dry Nutella, vanilla splash, light seltzer, and a spritzy citrus cocktail (including delightful grapefruit without the funk). This is a waaaay easy drinker.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: easy as pie

Ooh my friend was right when she said this would be my new warm weather go to can. Definitely a perfect match because I love just about anything related to Spain and of course anything related to festivals! 💃 This little can is Álvaro & Ana’s version of the sherry cocktail “rebujito” that is often used to cool revelers off during Sevilla’s April Festival and other hot days and nights of dancing, hitting the tapas, and just celebrating life. It’s also their “goal is to take you on a virtual trip through their native country with every can you open” which totally matches with why I started @worldbyglass “Traveling the world through one glass at a time”. Cheers and crack that can!

Spark It Up

C. Cassis
CC Spritz
Sparkling blackcurrant canned aperitif
Hudson Valley grown blackcurrants (many from Greg Quinn’s crop who helped get overturn their ban in NY State)
5.4% ABV
Catskill, NY
Made by Rachael Petach

Vibrant bright cranberry glass cocktail with teeny bubbles. Nose tickling black currants pop up & if there was a Jolly rancher version of it then that too, and a slight mint vibe that heads into alpine herbs floating around. All the scents are in the sip with a blend of citrus peels, raspberries, seltzer sizzle with a tart pop, a little lemon squish, and a touch of honey

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: ugh blerg NO

So for those of you who may have some bubbly leftovers from the holidays…who am I kidding…how can there ever be any bubbles left behind? Well, at least not in my place. Anyway, say you do want to spark up your sparkly. Just pour a 50/50 cava, champagne, or sparkling wine with CC Spritz and that blush in the glass will soon be spreading to your cheeks and maybe even the tips of your ears. It’ll make you want to as Salt-N-Pepa says, “Get down with the party”!
