Kentucky SupraFruta

Eppa SupraFruta

Have you heard of Eppa? It's a great sangria-like wine that is perfect if you aren't really into wines (or red wines) yet and need something a little sweeter to start. It's also not too sweet - and has great flavors like pomegranate in it. It's actually the wine that got me a little more open to red wines a few years back when Jason and I got it from whole foods at Easter.

Ingredients

Sometimes, I enjoy making super easy cocktails. I want to start giving some easier recipes that just kick things up a little bit with only a few ingredients. This cocktail is simple - a red wine (sangria or something else that is fairly fruity like a merlot or beaujolais) , a good Kentucky bourbon, and a fresh lime is all you need. The lime adds a nice tartness to the wine that really brings out the fruity flavors, and then bourbon for a nice oaky taste as well.

Lime

Squeeze half a lime into a cocktail glass.

Bulleit Bourbon

Pour 1 shot of bourbon and mix well.

  1. It's funny because I just recently posted about my trip to the vineyard and how it seems to be hard for me to find wine that I like. I haven't tried a whole bunch, but I like really fruity ones and don't know too much to know where to start. This sounds pretty good for me, though since it's more like a sangria and fruity and sweet. I love sweet wines. The only one I really like so far is Moscato.
