Sip On This: Strawberry Sparkler!

Cupcake Vineyards is known for their unique and elegant bottle labels, affordability and bubbly (at least thats what I like about these wines). Living in NYC we have the option to head anywhere for wine, but what’s one to do when the entire city isn’t your oyster and you have to make a decision on what wine to sip on this summer. There are endless options in your liquor store i’m sure of it, but when you want a nice wine to sip on AND make into a cocktail, what’s a wine lover to do?

Grab your friends, a bottle of Cupcake Prosecco, and make this stylish summer cocktail… thats what you do!
