Winesday Wednesday: Skinnygirl® Moscato
Yesterday I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the new Skinnygirl® Moscato wine. So naturally, being of legal age, I had to try it. And I liked it. And the best part is, it was only 100 calories for my five ounce serving.
Truth be told, I was a little wary about trying the Moscato. That was because of its oh-so-sweet reputation.
Admittedly, I was wrong.
I gave it a shot and I am happy I did. It was light and easy to drink, add in the 100 calories per serving and it was guilt-free, too. This wine is low in alcohol, sweet and slightly fizzy. So it makes it great to serve up at a ladies night (well any night really).
It has a fruit forward flavor with peach, pear and mango flavors. It is light, but not overpowering which is lovely to see in a sweeter wine. And the pale gold color of the wine is really very pretty.
Mosactos are meant to be served young. So this means, when you buy your Skinnygirl® Moscato enjoy it sooner, rather than later.
The flavors in the wine pair well with summertime staples like apples, berries, summer salads, peach cobblers and lemon cakes. But with its slight flavor and low alcohol content it will also work nicely paired with an antipasto plate, or with a selection of cheese.
Try enjoying Skinnygirl® Moscato at brunch with your friends, during a movie in the park picnic (if the location allows, of course) or at a dinner party. It is versatile enough to wear many masks and fit in wherever it needs to.
So go ahead, if you are of legal age, and try the Skinnygirl® Moscato out for yourself. And let us know what you think.
Please always remember to drink responsibly.
