Chardonnay Cover-Up

Usually a bottle of wine is a welcome gift, but if an oaky Chardonnay is not your wine of choice, Meredith Arthur, senior manager of CHOW operations, has a simple recipe to turn it into a refreshing cocktail. Just mix it with some Aperol, orange bitters, and a lemon twist and serve it over ice.

Watch Meredith make the Chardonnay Cover-Up in this CHOW Tip.

Instructions

Fill a cocktail glass halfway with ice. Add the wine, Aperol, and bitters and stir to combine. Rub the lemon or orange twist around the rim of the glass, place in the drink, and serve immediately.
