Eating and Drinking Cup Cakes

With Summer right around the corner, I'm on the hunt for good, affordable wine that will be refreshing in the heat; good for both sipping and dining.

I was introduced to Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc at a wine tasting years ago, and I remembered it to be full of lemon and citrus. Last night I tried it again and sure enough that acidic lemon just exploded on my tongue. It worked well with the shrimp, avocado and cilantro salad I was eating. The grapes are sourced from one of the best Sauvignon Blanc growing regions in the world, Marlborough, New Zealand and it's a bargain for around $10.

The cupcake Gods must be smiling on me because also yesterday, I was asked to host a Cupcake tasting Saturday the Firepit City Grill, at Gulf Coast Town Center in Estero, FL. We are trying nine different Cupcake Wines while eating what else....cupcakes! I can't wait to try the vineyard's two blends; Angel's Food and Red Velvet.

The Firepit is featuring Cupcake wines the month of May and we kick it off this weekend. Saturday (4/28). You get $5 glasses with an additional free taste, a mini cupcake and $20 bottles. That's not all, the Firepit has a license to party on the lawn. Typically, alcohol has to stay in the confines of the restaurant's patio. However, Saturday you can take all the cupcakes you can carry, to chairs or blankets on the lawn and listen to live Blues on the center stage of  Gulf Coast Town Center.

See you there!
