KC Matchpoint Margarita
1 large navel orange, thinly sliced
2 lemons, thinly sliced
2 limes, thinly sliced
4 large mint sprigs
1 bottle Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc
Juice of two large limes (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup blanco tequila
1/3 cup orange liqueur
24 ounces cans lime flavored club soda
Add the orange, lemon and lime slices and mint sprigs to a large pitcher and muddle using a large wooden spoon. Stir in one bottle Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur. Chill for at least one hour (up to four hours).
Fill six to eight glasses with ice and divide the sangria and fruit between them, leaving room for about an inch of club soda. Top each glass off with lime club soda, stir it in and serve immediately.

Juice of 2 lemons (about 1/3 cup lemon juice)
1 lemon, thinly sliced

In a large pitcher, combine the Kim Crawford Illuminate Rosé, lemon juice, strawberries, cucumber, basil and mint. Refrigerate for at least one hour (up to four hours). Stir in the sparkling pink lemonade right before serving. Pour into four to six ice-filled Collins glasses. Garnish with lots of pretty herbs and strawberry slices.
