It’s Thirst-day! This week’s wine recommendation is:
The Cool Hawaiian
1 oz. Jackson-Triggs Vidal Icewine
½ oz. pineapple juice
½ oz. strawberry purée
3 oz. Champagne or sparkling wine
Fill a shaker with ice, add Icewine, pineapple juice and strawberry purée. Shake vigorously.
Strain into a Champagne flute and top with Champagne.

Hob Nob Shiraz, Australia, $9.99 (June 24)
As succulent as a dark chocolate covered cherry. Enough said.

2008 Mapema Malbec, Argentina, $18.99 (June 17)
The savory, plumy and sometimes smoky qualities of a Malbec perfectly complement a grilled steak from the bbq this summer. For more information on wines from Argentina, visit http://www.winesofargentina.org
