IN THE SPIRIT FEATURING: GABBY CIRIGLIANO
My name is Gabby Cirigliano. I am a recent Virginia Tech graduate and lover of all things food and outdoors. I live in Stamford, CT and enjoy trying new restaurants and spending my days outside running, hiking or at the beach.
One of my favorite ways to spend a weekend over the summer is eating brunch outside surrounded by sunshine, great friends and laughter. As the summer winds down, here is one last brunch inspired drink to make at your next gathering to hold onto the summer just a little bit longer.
3.0 oz Sofia Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine
1.0 oz Harriet Peacher Stowe
0.5 oz Guava Ginger Ale
Combine all ingredients in glass and stir gently. Be careful when combining sparkling wine and peach juice to avoid carbonation overflow. Garnish with either rose petal or ginger cube.
I get inspiration from other food bloggers and also from walking around the grocery store. Each time I go grocery shopping, I try to find one item I do not generally buy and try to incorporate it into a meal! It is a fun way to try something new.
My favorite bar is in Blacksburg, Virginia where I went to college. It is a typical college bar and has been in town forever but is always full of so much energy and spirit. The best time to go is right after a football game!
