Mother's Day Gift Idea - Rose Jolee

A perfect gift for Mom . . . This semi-sparkling Muscat is delightfully pink, with a fragrance of honeysuckle and roses. A delicately sweet wine and the perfect partner for summertime fun! Aromas leap out of the glass in an explosion of peach and tangerine. The flavors of citrus balance well with the aromas and, a slight spritz completes this fun wine. (90% Early Muscat & 10% Merlot) $15/bottle * Wine Club members receive 20% off. Purchase Online.

And how about some Berry Trifle to pair with the sparkle and sweet of the Rose Jolee!

Summer Berry Trifle
1 package (3.4-ounce) instant vanilla pudding
4 cups fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries), washed and hulled,
plus extra for garnish
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
24 to 36 ladyfingers
1. To make the fillings, prepare the pudding according to the package directions and chill it.
2. Slice the strawberries, if you're using them, then toss all of the berries with the lemon juice and the 1/4 cup of sugar. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the berries to release their juices.
3. In a medium mixing bowl, whip the cream, vanilla extract, and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar until soft peaks form. Set aside.
4. To make the layers, set a layer of ladyfingers (around 7 or 8) on the bottom of a large, clear serving bowl (ours was 4 quarts). Top with the berries with half of the pudding.
5. Add another layer of ladyfingers, another third of the berries and juice, and the rest of the pudding. Add a final layer of ladyfingers and berries. Top with the whipped cream and a berry garnish.
6. Refrigerate until you're ready to serve. Serves 8 to 10.
