Today I'm celebrating National Moscato Day with my #SundaySupper Family and Gallo Family Vineyards.

I couldn't think of a better way to enjoy the celebration then sharing my recipe for Sparkling Strawberry Grapefruit Moscato Punch. Colt and I have made different variations of this punch over the years and it's always been a hit! 

We love to use Moscato Wine in punch for it's sweet flavor, limiting the need for much additional sugar and it's wonderful complementation to the strawberries and grapefruit.

On this particular occasion I chose to use Gallo Family Vineyards Red Moscato for it gorgeous ruby red color along with delicious notes of berries and citrus. I find the Red Moscato to be perfectly sweet but not too sweet to sip alone. It helps give the punch it's deliciously dark fuchsia color.

I added Pink Moscato Champagne to tingle the tongue a little, strawberries, raspberries, and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice to compliment the Red Moscato.

A refreshing cocktail full of flavor perfect for Mother's Day, Barbecues and Holidays! 

I know you will enjoy sipping Sparkling Strawberry Grapefruit Moscato Punch as much as we do.

To garnish glasses slice a strawberry half way up the middle and place on side of glass. Using a peeler remove about a 3"x 1/8" long strip of grapefruit peel and twist around a dowel to to form a curl and place over side of glass.
