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
