Veuve and vim: Fix a cocktail with some va-va-voom
Pink champagne on ice is the drink of the summer
Champagne drinkers can toast to summer in the city as Veuve Clicquot introduces Rich Rosé to SA just in time for the season. Created expressly for mixology, it is a versatile and celebratory summer drink for champagne fans to create their own playful drinking experience.
Supported by cellar master Dominique Demarville, specialist mixologists selected ingredients to magnify the signature notes of the wine. It is best enjoyed over ice with fresh lime, pineapple, ginger, or even tea.
Demarville says “sugar in champagne is like spices in a recipe; used correctly it can bring out specific aromas and play with taste”. Intense red berry fruit notes originate from the blending of Pinot Noir red wine with Meunier, with the creamy finish common to Veuve.
