I went to Olive Garden this past weekend; besides being beyond excited to have the breadsticks there (how amazing are the breadsticks?) I was also very excited to have the Venetian Sunset, my favorite Olive Garden mixed drink.The Venetian Sunset is made with Martini & Rossi Asti, along with pineapple and cherry juices…and yes, it is as delicious as it sounds and looks.Martini & Rossi Asti has a great flavor by itself (it’s my favorite type of champagne), but the pineapple and cherry juices make this drink that much more irresistible.The Venetian Sunset has the perfect amount of sweetness to it and the bubbles from the champagne makes the drink taste more like a soda than an alcoholic beverage.This is one drink that you just NEED to try.
Moscato Citrus Berry Splash
After ordering my precious Venetian Sunset, another wine based mixed drink on the drink menu caught my eye, the Moscato Citrus Berry Splash; doesn’t this just sound like the perfect summer drink?This drink is made with sparkling Moscato wine, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and whole fresh blueberries.The drink looked very pretty (yes, drinks can look pretty!) and I just couldn’t wait to try it.Similar to the Venetian Sunset, the Moscato Citrus Berry Splash tasted like a soda because of the fizz from the sparkling wine, however, this drink was not as sweet as the Venetian Sunset and I would’ve preferred a tiny dab of grenadine, but overall, it was a yummy drink.
The best part about these drinks is that they seem to be so easy to make!They would be the perfect summertime girls’ night beverages.
