Wine Wednesday Question: What is the best wine you’ve ever had?
It’s the first day of Spring, and we can’t wait for the fresh, crisp air and the warm breezes. Today’s Wines by Wives Wine Cocktail Wednesday drink is a preview of the wonderful season of new beginnings, cool nights, and blowy afternoons. The Lily Pad, is made with Pinot Grigio, and is as refreshing and relaxing as having brunch outside on a Spring morning. Try it with our new St. Marina Pinot Grigio found here: http://bit.ly/WBWSMPG or any of your favorite Wines by WIves Pinot Grigio‘s found here: http://bit.ly/WBWWhiteWine
Build in a glass over ice. Squeeze lemon wedge on top. Stir. You can garnish with a lime wedge.
Recipe From The Wine Bar
A Food Pairing Friday first: Turkey! If you need a break from chicken, turkey can be a great alternative. This pan seared turkey cutlet with wine sauce recipe can be made with any dry white wine, such our Arquero Sauvignon Blanc. Shop Wines by Wives white wines here: http://bit.ly/WBWWhiteWines
- 1 small boneless, skinless turkey breast half (about 2 pounds)
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- Cut turkey, skinned side down, into 8 cutlets (see note). Cover with plastic wrap, and lightly pound cutlets with a meat mallet or bottom of a heavy skillet until inch thick. Season with salt and pepper.
- In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high. Working in batches, cook cutlets until browned and opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side (add 1 tablespoon oil when needed). Transfer to a plate, and cover loosely with foil.
- Add wine to skillet, and bring to a boil. Cook, scraping up browned bits with a wooden spoon, until reduced to 1/2 cup, 6 to 8 minutes. Whisk in Dijon; bring to a simmer. Remove from heat; stir in parsley, and season with salt and pepper. Top turkey with sauce.
