St. Patrick's Day cocktails Woodbridge Emerald Isle CoolerEmerald Isle Cooler

Serves 4-6

1 cup simple syrup (recipe below)
1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, about 3 to 4 lemons
½ bottle Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay
2 cups water
2 cups ice cubes
½ seedless cucumber

1. Pour ginger-infused syrup into a larger pitcher

2. Add lemon juice, chardonnay and water, stir, then add ice

3. With a vegetable peeler, remove and discard a lengthwise strip of skin from one side of the half-cucumber. Shave 8 to 10 long, paper-thin ribbons of cucumber into the pitcher. Push them down into ice and stir gently, so the cucumber unfolds to make an attractive visual garnish in the lemonade

4. Chill for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to meld, or up to an hour. Serve well-iced in tall glasses

Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 to 10 thin slices fresh ginger

1. Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan. Add 3 to 10 slices of fresh ginger, with 3 giving the finished syrup a mild ginger flavor and 10 yielding a more assertive result

2. Simmer mixture for 8 to 10 minutes, until sugar has dissolved and the vapors rising from the pot smell noticeably of ginger

3. Cool syrup to room temperature, then strain out ginger

4. Chill syrup until you’re ready to assemble the lemonade
