A Thanksgiving Sparkling Cocktail Recipe
Our sparkling sale starts today and we thought we'd share this fun seasonal sparkling wine cocktail with you! Who doesn't love a great brunch? With the holiday season upon us, we're dreaming up the perfect Friendsgiving Brunch and breakfasts with the family. And nothing goes with brunch better than a mimosa. We thought this recipe for an Apple Cider Mimosa from Esquire Magazine is a tasty alternative to the regular orange juice version.
The Ruby Hill Sparkling Wine is made from 100% Chardonnay and features bright aromas of apple, lemon, and tropical fruits. It has a full body that is balanced by acidity, making it a perfect wine to pair with salty foods, sharp cheeses — or in this case, an Apple Cider Mimosa. It's definitely with best friends. Tag us on social if you make it and let us know what you think!
Apple Cider Mimosa
• 4 oz. Ruby Hill Sparkling Wine
• 2 oz. all-natural apple cider
• 1 oz. cinnamon whiskey
• 1 slice of apple, for garnish
Mix cider and cinnamon whiskey in a champagne flute. Top with champagne, then stir lightly until incorporated. Garnish with an apple slice.

Your Perfect Ruby Hill Wine Pairings for Thanksgiving
We don't know about you, but Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. Besides being an opportunity to gather with our loved ones, Thanksgiving is when we get to sit down and enjoy some of the most delicious foods of the season. It's the time of year where we dig through the recipe box for those classic recipes from our childhood or when we experiment with new twists on old favorites.
But what's a great meal without great wine? If you're at the point in your planning where it's time to add wines to the shopping list, take a look below at some of our favorite Ruby Hill wines for your Turkey Day meals.
Thanksgiving Pairings with Ruby Hill Wines
Ruby Hill Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is very true to the variety. Very expressive nose with a big hit of stone fruit, followed by guava, passionfruit, and some subtle floral notes.
People tend to forget about Sauvignon Blanc this time of year, but it's a great wine for the holiday season. The fruit flavors of this wine can play nicely with roasted squash, and the acidity cuts through the creaminess of dishes like mashed potatoes.
Ruby Hill Jewel Chardonnay
The aroma is dominated by vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, and lemon tart. The mouthfeel is extremely creamy and full, with hints of butter and toasted marshmallows coming through.
Chardonnay is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, and it's for a good reason. The influence of oak in the Jewel Chardonnay adds extra body, flavors, and richness that complement the rich foods of Thanksgiving as well.
Ruby Hill Peacock Patch Zinfandel
The nose is very powerful with strong spice notes, including black pepper and clove and a dark fruit character. The flavor opens up more in the mouth, revealing a big wine with jammy notes, a prominent plum flavor, as well as hints of chocolate-covered cherries.
Cabernet is King, but Zinfandel shines on Thanksgiving Day as well. The deep, dark fruit flavors and spice notes match the jammy flavors of holiday glazes and sauces. There's just enough tannin and acid to stand up to your favorite meat dishes as well.
Ruby Hill Jewel Collection Petite Sirah
A with a very dark and complex nose, hints of prunes, jewel black raspberries, pepper jelly, and hints of vanilla.
Petite Sirah is always a favorite for roasted meats. The spice and herb characteristics of Petite Sirah lend it to meals typical of this season. A well-season turkey or chicken will taste outstanding with this bottle from the Jewel Collection.
