Celebrate the Holidays with J.P. Chenet Ice



Harvest Moon cocktail created by Ivy Mix 




The holiday season is all about enjoying a refreshing cocktail and drinking them responsibly. Back in September I discovered J.P. Chenet Ice, a sparkling wine form one of the best selling French winemakers. J.P. Chenet Ice is everything you want from a sparkling wine and it is crafted to be poured over ice and can be  poured in  larger mouth wine glasses over traditional flutes. The citrus and tropical notes make for easy pairing with fish or  pork  or poultry. I'm a fan of J.P. Chenet Ice by itself  but Brooklyn mixologist Ivy Mix from Clover Club  has crafted some flavorful recipes you can enjoy during this festive season and all the way into the  New Year.  For more information on J.P. Chenet Ice click here and see below for the recipes.
