One of the newest products to enter the Pernod Ricard USA portfolio is ZED – an unconventional sparkling wine with a blushing pink color. ZED is a moscato rose, a style of wine that brings sweet and fizzy vivaciousness to your glass. While perfect simply chilled and served in a flute, ZED also makes for an ideal partner to a variety of cocktail recipes, for a special celebration or simply a night spent at home with friends. And, in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, here are a few cocktail suggestions developed by The Cocktail Guru that will truly wow your special someone!
