May 9th is National Moscato Day, an annual holiday dedicated to enjoying the delicious wine varietal. The growing interest in Moscato shows a shift in how Americans are thinking about wine. It’s seen as more approachable as a younger generation breaks from the traditional wine rules and seeks out sweet and flavorful wines for enjoyment during more casual occasions.
In the spirit of these changing ideas about wine and sharing experiences, Gallo Family Vineyards invites Americans to show how they #MixItUp on #MoscatoDay during a @GalloFamily Twitter Party at 7 pm EST on Friday, May 9th. Fans can also take Gallo Family’s “Moscatofy Yourself” quiz on the Winery website beginning on May 9th.
1 1/4 ounces Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato
1 ounce silver tequila
1 1/3 ounces lime juice
1/2 ounce orange juice
1/4 ounce ginger simple syrup
Lime wheel for garnish
