A Glass of Fun, Anyone?
Brachetto d’Acqui. Very often this is a light dessert aperitif but I like it in place of champagne. This is a nice alternative to your traditional sparkling wine and in my opinion the perfect summer beverage. Another asset of this wine is that it has less alcohol than its friends, typically 5.5%. It’s not too sweet or too dry which equates to pure goodness. You can find a good Brachetto d'Acqui for $15.00. If you are still not convinced, it is believed that Cleopatra used this wine to seduce Julius Caesar. So hey, if it’s good enough for Cleopatra and Julius, than it’s good enough for me! Got any good summer beverages to share?
