Summer of ’75 Cocktail: The Crisp, Refreshing Way to Celebrate Memories

Summer of ’75 Cocktail: The Crisp, Refreshing Way to Celebrate Memories

We’ve come to find that the heat of the summer creates a thirst for not only a great cocktail, but a bit of reminiscing. The “Summer of ’75” is our way of celebrating both, paying homage to the year Bob Trinchero accidentally discovered our signature Sutter Home White Zinfandel and almost single-handedly changed the way America drinks wine, and oh what a delicious wine it is.

Flash back with this light and fruity cocktail to all of your favorite summers. Share the good times by pairing it with good friends, a good book, favorite summer songs, and a variety of good eats, meats, and cheeses. Back in ’75, the one thing that our Sutter Home family could have never predicted was that our Sutter Home White Zinfandel would become another one of America’s favorite pastimes.
