The Chef Table- Spiced Cinnamon Wine Cocktail


The Chef Table- Spiced Cinnamon Wine Cocktail

This cocktail concept takes you to a beautiful date night with a great dish and an amazing wine cocktail. Normally people drink wine on a date with that special someone. In this case, the cocktail experience provides the best of both worlds, a classic cocktail, and red wine. The delicious notes of Makers 46 and combination with the sweet and citrus notes of the Pierre Ferrand dry curacao and  dry notes of the American Cabernet Sauvignon infused with cinnamon and anise star, gives this wine cocktail a magnificent and flavorful experience. Cheers.
