June Wine Picks

With Summer officially here, the Wine Department has selected 3 wines to get you ready for the upcoming long and hot days:

Gary’s Pick-Lamarca Prosecco: this was the only sparkling wine to make Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list this past year.  Whether your making mimosas or looking for the perfect wedding toast wine, Lamarca will not disappoint.

Jon’s Pick-Montinore Borealis White: this Oregon blend of Riesling, Muller-Thürgau, Pinot Gris and Gewurtztraminer is sure to be a crowd-pleaser this summer.  Lightly sweet with tons of fruit, all this wine needs is a glass and a friend.

Tim’s Pick-Three Saints Steak House Red: this Washington state blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah is already a Lukas best seller, so Tim couldn’t resist picking it for the month.  Steak House Red is the essential wine for your next BBQ.  Have you had it yet?

May Picks from the Lukas Wine Department

May Wine Picks
A trio of great wines to start of your summer!

For the month of May, the Lukas Wine Departtment has selected three wines that are great choices to kick off your summer of wine.

Gary’s pick: Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc “The Fume.” This wine received 90 points from Wine Spectator and for under $15, is a near unbeatable Sauvignon Blanc.

Tim’s Pick: Charles & Charles Rose. This Washington state Rose, made from 100% Syrah, is the best answer to the question “what will I serve on my patio?”

Jon’s pick: Tamari Torrontes. Jon is the “newest” addition to the Wine Department and he has come out swinging! This Argentine delight is a great alternative to Un-Oaked Chardonnay or Viognier.

Stop by and see who has picked YOUR favorite wine this month.

New Spirits 4-5-11

Hanger One Chipotle Vodka is back!!!

For any drink calling for a heat component (such as a tabasco or hot sauce) this would be a natural choice. Outstanding Bloody Marys and interesting Corpse Reviver-type morning drinks. Mixed reviews with our martini attempts. Goes well with chocolate. Also a great accompaniment to smoked fish or game.

Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka

Cabin Fever Whiskey

Seagram’s Muscato Vodka

Benito’s Moscato Mule Cocktail
2 oz. Seagram’s Moscato
3 large basil leaves, plus more for garnish
Ginger Beer
Ice

Keep your Seagram’s Moscato in the freezer–it tastes best ice cold, and also helps keep your cocktails cool. Combine the basil and Seagram’s Moscato in a shaker. Use a muddler to smash up the basil. (If you don’t have one, chop the basil before adding to the shaker.) Add ice, and shake thoroughly. Fill a tumbler with ice and strain the vodka/basil over the ice. Then cover with ginger beer, and stir briefly before serving. Garnish with more basil if desired.
