Scout and Cellar Citrus Bliss

Post 2/5

Now here’s a ‘grove’ you can enjoy a blissful afternoon in! Scout & Cellar  have just announced an addition to their unique, clean crafted wine based mixer ‘Wilderness Road’ with ‘The Grove’.

These are fortified wine mixers, made with the same toxin-free ‘clean-crafted’ principle as in all the Scout and Cellar products, and is a great alternative to hard alcohol bases, to create light, refreshing cocktails.

Infused with botanicals, ‘The Grove’ tastes a lot like gin!  I had great fun pairing it with basil, fresh orange juice and a splash of seltzer water to create a light, refreshing cocktail.

The notes of this drink pairs perfectly with the sweet, salty and bitter notes of the Marinated Citrus Salad with Feta & Crispy Prosciutto.

This cocktail is part 2/5 of my ‘Fall into Citrus’ menu created for my virtual cooking class for the John Knox Village Active Aging Week.

Enjoy!

  • Author: Carol Green

Description

The Scout and Cellar fortified wine mixer called ‘The Grove’, is a great alternative to hard alcohol bases, to create light, refreshing cocktails. This recipe with basil and orange is the perfect compliment to the Citrus Salad with Prosciutto and Feta


Scale

Ingredients

Per serving:

3          Basil leaves

1          fl oz. Simple Syrup or sweetener of choice

3          fl oz. fresh Orange Juice

1.5       fl oz. ‘The Grove’

4          oz sparkling water (San Pelligrino works best)

Orange Twist to garnish


Instructions

  • Place the basil leaves in a glass with the simple syrup, ‘muddle’ with a pestle or spoon to release the mint essential oils.
  • Add the orange juice, Country Road and top with sparkling water.
  • Stir, add twist and enjoy!

Notes

Note: To make your own simple syrup dissolve one-part sugar and one-part water over low heat, bring to a gentle boil, remove from heat and allow to cool.
