This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gallo Family Vineyards for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
May 9 is National Moscato Day and I will mix some Peach and Mint Moscato cocktails to celebrate using the Moscato from the Gallo family vineyards. Moscato wines are sweet and light-bodied, making them the ideal choice for a warm and entertaining climate.
I love a glass of white wine during the spring and summer months. There is nothing more relaxing and refreshing than having a glass of wine on a warm day.

But sometimes I want something a little more casual and a little bit more festive. Southerners do a lot of outdoor entertainment during the summer and we need something very refreshing to beat the summer heat.
That's where the wine cocktails come in. This Peach Mint Moscato cocktail in particular is cold, fruity, and invigorating, and is appropriate for a pool party, a backyard barbecue, and a porch evening with neighbors, or a summer cocktail party more formal. . A wine cocktail is perfectly dressed for any occasion and will be a hit at any summer gathering. Even better, wine cocktails can be served in virtually any glass and are easy to make in large quantities.
Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato already has wonderful hints of peach and honey, so I broadened the theme of the summer by adding fresh peach puree, rum, some peach brandy, and a simple syrup infused with mint. I kept the amounts of these ingredients to a minimum because I really love the taste of Moscato Gallo Family Vineyards and just wanted to improve it.
In addition to the White Moscato, there is also a Pink Moscato with hints of red berries and orange blossom and a Red Moscato with a bright red finish.
