I used to cringe when my Nana would add ice cubes to her wine, but in this heat, I can’t imaging anything more refreshing. Saturday night I caught up with Progressive Bar’s Mark Kiyojima, about his Reggae Sunsplash, which he custom built around Rock ’n’ Roll Wine’s own Reggae Rhapsody Napa Valley white-wine blend.
2 oz. Reggae Rhapsody
1 oz. Appleton Jamaican
2 each, limes and lemons (quartered, seeds removed)
2 tsp. organic sugar
1-2 dashes Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Muddle two wedges each of lime and lemon in a mixing glass with sugar. Add wine, rum, bitters and ice; shake and dou ble-strain into a fresh glass over ice. Add two slices of strawberry.
