I was sent Mirassou® Wine to try and share with my family. All opinions are my own.
It's time for the big southern brunches and dinners. Families coming together to eat good and share a holiday together. Southerns do it big too, go big or go home. We like big meals filled with a glazed ham and a turkey. My favorite part of Easter is brunch though. I could have breakfast for dinner any night of the week. I thought I'd share some wine pairings to go with some of my favorite Easter brunch and dinners.
Easter Brunch Wine Pairings
Brunch is a good time for sparkling wines but I like the light fruity blends like a Riesling or a Mascato.
Anything with eggs – here are 12 amazing egg recipes to try bursting with flavor – Sparkling Wines (mimosa)
Muffins – Giant ones!
Easter Dinner Wine Pairings
Spiral Cut Honey Glazed Ham – Riesling (White) or Pinot Nior (Red).
Lamb Chops – Mirassou® California Cabernet Sauvignon
Pork Chops or Roast – Merlot
Roasted Chicken – White meat for white wine – Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. Dark Meat goes well with Pinot Nior.
You can't forget dessert! I'd love to try this Cherry Bread Pudding. But I'm also quite fond of my Bird Nest Cookies, a delicious coconut macaroon.
Plus, I'm sure that there will be plenty of candy and chocolate from the kids! Mascato is my dessert wine of choice.
I think my Easter basket will be the talk of the holiday though. Way cooler than the kids!
