Gourmet Cupcakes & Vino

Photo Source

A little while a go, I enjoyed a new experience... pairing gourmet cupcakes with wine. This is a great cocktail party or upscale dessert option. At this event, Cupcakes Gourmet provided yummy delicious mini cupcakes (not pictured above) and Franks Union Wine Mart provided a variety of wines from Cupcake Vineyard (how appropriate!).

I learned a few pairing tips and (lucky for you) I decided to spread the knowledge:

  • Lemon cupcakes taste best with Sauvignon Blanc
  • Raspberry cupcakes go fabulously with Pinot Grigio
  • Vanilla cupcakes go nicely with Chardonnay
  • Red velvet goes with a blended wine called... wait for it... Red velvet 
The next time you feel like splurging on cupcakes, don't forget to grab a bottle of wine to go with them. 

Go and be FABULOUS!
