This simple Blackberry Royale uses Pinot Noir to add a touch of elegance to your cocktail.
Twisted takes on traditional cocktails always intrigue me. When Little Black Dress Wines asked me if I would like to participate in their #LBDPinkDrink campaign and after reading what the campaign was all about I knew that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Little Black Dress Wines is a longtime supporter of causes that are important to women. In partnership with the “Keep A Breast Foundation” a non-profit organization with a mission to empower your people around the world about breast health education.
As a breast cancer survivor this campaign is near and dear to me. Sometimes, I feel as if I am in a time warp. Hearing the news from my surgeon doesn’t seem like it was nine years ago. Yet, it feels as though it was an eternity that I heard those words “breast cancer”!
Being diligent about annual exams is why mine was discovered at stage zero and I am here today healthy and living a happy and fulfilled life.
Back to this delicious cocktail. I created a Drink Pink cocktail with the help of LBD wines and a spin-off of their “Cherry Shandy” cocktail.
- 3 oz Little Black Dress Pinot Noir
- 1 oz unsweetened organic lemonade
- 1 oz Chambord or creme de cassis
- Blackberries for garnish
- In a cocktail Shaker filled with ice, combine the wine, lemonade, and chambord.
- Pour into prepared glass

Get into a Little Black Dress wine, accessorized with fruit-forward aromas, hints of dazzle, an impeccable sense of balance and a body to die for. Great taste is your best accessory. Little Black Dress Wines cover every mood from spirited to sophisticated and turning heads along the way.
The company got its name from the iconic little black dress, known to be simply timeliness, playful yet elegant and ready for anything at a moment’s notice. With grapes from California, Little Black Dress is a wine that is appealing to classic fashionably-minded women. Masterfully created by a talented female winemaker, the Little Black Dress family of wines (including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Divalicious Pink Pinot, Divalicious Red, Merlot, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Noir) are versatile and timeless.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
