This deviled egg recipe pairs perfectly with a Prosecco!

Get ready for springtime entertaining. Whether you’re throwing an elaborate dinner party or are just having a casual get together with a few friends and family, you can’t go wrong with deviled eggs. Plus, they’re great to pair with a Prosecco or a light rose. Be sure to check out this delicious deviled egg recipe for your next get-together. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.

Ingredients:

6 eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon yellow mustard

1/8 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Smoked paprika

Start by boiling the eggs in a medium saucepan. Put the eggs in the saucepan and cover them with water so there’s 1 ½ inches of water above the eggs. Heat the pot until the water comes to a boil. Then, cover the pot and continue to cook at a low heat for one minute. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand for about 15 minutes. Once the eggs have cooled a bit, run them under cold water.

Remove the eggshells and then slice the eggs in half. Be sure to remove the yolks and set them aside. Mash the yolks in a separate bowl – add in the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper, and be sure to mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Lay the egg whites out on a platter and fill their centers with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle each egg with paprika and enjoy! It’s the perfect recipe for an easy yet delicious appetizer.

Champagne Vs. Sparkling Wine Vs. Prosecco

Champagne vs Sparkling WineUnderstanding Different Sparkling Wines

Many people who love indulging in bubbly have no idea what the difference is between champagne, sparkling wine and prosecco. If you assumed this was simply another name for the same thing, you are incorrect. The name of a specific type of bubbly is actually dependent on the region in which the grapes were grown and harvested.

The short and sweet answer to what the difference is between champagne and sparkling wine is that sparkling wine can only be called champagne if the grapes come from the region of Champagne, France. This sparkling city sits right outside of Paris, and turns Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Pinot Meuniers into Champagne. It may seem confusing but all champagne is considered sparkling wine, although this statement is not true vice versa.

The same goes when questioning why Prosecco is a sparkling wine but a sparkling wine cannot be a Prosecco. Prosecco is always made from the Italian grape, Glera and can only be grown and harvested in the Veneto region of northeast Italy.

We recommend tasting these three bubblies side by side and taking notes to help you notice the differences more clearly:

  • La Marca Prosecco; $11.99 – With hints of honeysuckle, white peach, and apple, the pleasant acidity of this sparkling wine will help you notice the unique aromas.
  • Chandon Brut Classic; $15.99 – You can experience the complexities of a true champagne by indulging in this sparkling wine that has complex hints of citrus spice, pear and apple.
  • Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Wine; $9.99 – Once you have tasted the sparkling wines from Italy and France, take a moment to indulge in an Australian sparkling wine. See if you can tell the difference in the complexity of the wine!

Greet The New Season With A Summer Wine Party!

Tips for Throwing a Summer Wine PartyHosting A Summer Wine Party 101

There is no better way to welcome summer with open arms than to enjoy wine parties with your friends and family. If you will be hosting a summer wine party to celebrate the arrival of the most enjoyable season of the year with the ones you love most, we hope these helpful tips for summer parties help.

Tips For Throwing A Summer Wine Party:

  • When it comes to picking the fixings for your summer wine party, try to pick seasonal ingredients as these fresh finds will best compliment the wine. Try picking fresh ingredients to make a refreshing summer salad with ingredients such as citrus dressings, strawberries, leafy greens, fresh herbs, and succulent tomatoes.
  • Fresh seasonal summer dishes are best complimented with acidic wines that are full of citrus flavors. Sparkling acidic wines also compliment these seasonal finds perfectly. Try pairing your dishes with Rose, Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, and Riesling.
  • A summer wine party cannot be complete without cheese. Make a cheese pairing plate with aged goat cheese, Manchego, creamy raw cow’s milk cheese, and similar finds to best compliment the acidic wines you will be serving.
  • A great way to spice up your summer wine party is to ask each guest to bring their favorite wine that reminds them of their favorite vacation destination. That way, when each bottle is opened the guest can have their moment in the spotlight as they explain their favorite vacation memories and why this particular wine brings them back to their favorite place.
