Today’s daily writing challenge at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/pick-your-potion/ is: Captain Picard was into Earl Grey tea; mention the Dude and we think: White Russians. What’s your signature beverage — and how did it achieve that status?
My signature beverage would have to be Moscato Wine! I love the sweet, fruity taste on my tongue. Better yet, I love the way Moscato wine smells. It fills your senses with its tangy peachy aroma. Most other wines do not smell this fantastic!
I enjoy both white Moscato and pink Moscato wines. Both of them are similar; however, I believe pink Moscato is quite a bit more tart. My sipping wine of choice is the white Moscato. Red Moscato wine has an entirely different taste and smell. It tastes darker to me – full bodied with a hint of cherry. I do enjoy a red Moscato on occasion, it just is not my favorite.
I was introduced to Moscato wine from a bunch of friends (neighbors) when we lived in Great Falls, Montana. I attended a wine and cheese party where there was every type of cheese and wine served that I could possibly think of. We had a great time and I found my passion for Moscato wine. I have been enjoying this wine ever since.
Moscato wine became my favorite drink to share with family and friends. Even though we have all moved on to other areas of the country, or even overseas, (many of my friends were active duty military) I am always reminded of the fantastic times we had in Montana every time I sip my glass of Moscato. Good times and good friends along with a great glass of wine – it does not get much better than this!
