Dinner party and drinks

Blush Sparkling Wine is a fabulous addition to any meal or dinner party thanks to its versatile flavour profile and cleansing textures.

If you want to start your night right, serve your bottle of Blush alongside a charcuterie-style spread of prosciutto, smoked salmon, flatbreads, and soft cheeses like brie, camembert, and Roquefort.

Cocktails

Sparkling rosé cocktails

 

Elderflower Spritzer

Suffused with floral perfumes and elegant fizz, an Elderflower Spritzer is the perfect fuss-free cocktail for garden parties and warm nights.

This drink is naturally extremely low in alcohol but can be made totally booze-free by swapping out the Elderflower Liqueur for some Elderflower Cordial.

You Will Need:

Make sure your sparkling wine is thoroughly chilled and pour it into a Champagne flute. Add the elderflower liqueur before topping off with your preferred amount of soda water.

 

Pink French 75

A French 75 is one of the most iconic Champagne cocktails in the world. By replacing this traditional ingredient with Blush Sparkling Wine you get a fun pink twist accompanied by added style and botanical goodness. If you’d prefer a mocktail, use Gordon’s Alcohol Free in place of a full-strength gin.

You Will Need:

  • 100ml Blush Sparkling Wine
  • 50ml Gin
  • 20ml Simple Syrup
  • 20ml Lemon Juice
  • Ice

Add the gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain the gin mixture into a Champagne flute and top with Blush Sparkling Wine.

 

Fizzy Frosé

Frozen rosé (fondly known as frosé) is a lush iced cocktail that delivers intense summertime refreshment.

Some frosé recipes call for freezing your wine overnight or adding handfuls of ice, but these are going to seriously dull the taste of your drink. Instead, this super simple method can be prepared in minutes and is brimming with authentic fruit flavour thanks to one special ingredient: frozen strawberries.

You Will Need:

Serves 2

  • 300ml Blush Sparkling Wine
  • 150g Frozen Strawberries
  • Honey (optional)

Add the fruit and wine to a high-powered blender and blitz until completely smooth. Adjust the quantities of each ingredient to achieve your desired consistency and put in a drizzle of honey if you prefer a sweeter blend. Strain the mixture to remove any seeds and serve in cocktail glasses.

 

Nude Sparkling Wine

Sparkling white wine bottle

The Nude expression from Wild Life Botanicals is a sparkling white wine with unique refinement and sublime flavour. Bouquets of perfumed summer fruits meet with sharp citrus on this elegant palate, displaying tones of greengage, apricot, gooseberry, lime zest, and honeysuckle.

Wild Life’s abundance of botanicals is set against a cool mineral edge, carried perfectly on a stream of sparkling bubbles. Dry, crisp, and brilliantly versatile, Nude Sparkling Wine is the non-alcoholic bubbly you’ve been waiting for.

 

Food Pairings For Wild Life Botanicals Nude

White wine and food

With its bright flavour and invigorating fizz, Nude makes the perfect pre-dinner aperitif. To really get the appetite going, serve a glass with a selection of green olives and salted almonds.

As with all white wines, this bottle is a natural accompaniment to seafood and fresh vegetables. Pan-fried scallops or grilled asparagus with hollandaise sauce would be a delicious starter, even better when followed with a Salad Niçoise for mains.

This simple salad of fresh tuna, new potatoes, anchovies, green beans, and lettuce will be brilliantly uplifted by the tart citrus edge of Nude Sparkling Wine and can easily be made with halloumi or tofu for a meat-free alternative.

Wild Life Nude is also the ideal way to conclude a meal, sipped alongside lemon sorbet or fruit tartlets for a light finish.
