It is no secret that I am a wine drinker. I love wine! I love everything about it: the bottle, the cork, the openers, wine glasses, and of course the beautiful vineyards. I love the oak barrels! However, I don't like Chardonnay. I don't like the Oak taste. It gives me a headache. I really only enjoy very dry white wine. My poison of choice is Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
I love where I live, however, the retail area leaves a lot to be desired. Very few stores here have a good wine selection. So I decided I need to do something to make that bottle of Chardonnay a little more desirable. Well, I did and I love it! In fact everyone I have made it for really likes it, too.
I don't know about where you live, but where I live summer has arrived. It is about 500 degrees (give or take a degree or two).
My daughter, Brittney, who is almost 25 year old said we needed to name the drink. So it became the C Spot. We will leave it at that. But I am sure you will love the refreshing and light citrus flavor!
Make your own C Spot :
Slice a navel orange and put it in a zip lock bag. Freeze it for at least one hour. It will not dilute your wine and it will keep your drink ice cold! Eating the orange after it has soaked up all the wine flavor is the best part.
Add the frozen orange slice to your glass of Chardonnay
Add a splash of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Garnish will a sprig of mint.
Warning: It does go down very smooth. Drink responsibly. Walk with caution. Talk with caution!
