Join us on this week episode of Ballgowns and Booze as Teddy and Elouise make some delicious cocktails with Verwood’s Chardonnay.

  • Slice of lemon
  • 60ml Chardonnay
  • 60ml soda water
  • 15ml limoncello

  1. Take a wine glass
  2. Add a slice of lemon at the bottom
  3. Add the Chardonnay
  4. Add the soda water
  5. Add the limoncello
  6. Stir it well
  7. Serve!

Le Telou

This is an easy to drink cocktail with well-balanced acidity and sweetness, from the French Pyrenees.  There is nothing that excites the tastebuds more than Sweet and Sour, Bitter and acid flavours in the one taste sensation.  If that is your, weakness, you may wish to try Beef dumpling in Hot & Sour Soup with Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir.
