The Story Behind The Chardonnay Day Iced Tea
This week my cocktail is inspired by one of the best days on the calendar, National Chardonnay Day. I always have a cold bottle on hand in the fridge so I didn’t have to do much searching for supplies and finding flavors to pair with that bottle of Chardonnay is like trying to decide when to drink Chardonnay – it was pretty easy.
After a quick look around the kitchen I pulled together some lime, honey, tea and gin, all additions I felt would accentuate the floral and citrus botanicals of the wine. A little experimenting was necessary (and fun) to find the correct balance in this cocktail but in the end I think the result is absolutely delicious. A fitting tribute to a great white wine on its official day.
