Grammy Awards Wine and Cocktail Pairings

*Congrats to ‘Best New Artist’ Grammy Winner Megan Thee Stallion

With the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards rapidly approaching, it is time to start thinking about accolade-worthy wine and cocktail pairings to savor during the broadcast on March 14. Here are our picks for Best Beverages paired perfectly with each Record of the Year nominee.

BLACK PARADE (Beyoncé)

Trivento Reserve Maximum Red Blend ($10.99)

Beyoncé has been known to enjoy a glass of red wine and we can think of no better way than to toast this accolade than with a wine named after Trivento Reserve’s charismatic and charming winemaker – Maximiliano Ortiz. This deep ruby-red Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend, presents an aromatic complexity given by blackcurrants, red and black berries, black pepper, cinnamon, tobacco and smoky notes from the oak. In the mouth, the wine is round and sweet with good structure, persistent and pleasant tannins. The long finish is accompanied by oaky notes.

COLORS (Black Pumas)

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot ($6.99)

Given Adrian Quesada’s impressive career spanning multiple genres, we’re thinking he might appreciate a wine brand that annually supports the Latin Grammys…this bright and intense ruby red Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend presents with dark berries and cocoa which carry over to the palate and are rounded out with mild but sexy tannins.

ROCKSTAR (DaBaby Featuring Roddy Ricch)

Frontera Sauvignon Blanc ($6.99)

DaBaby has been spotted enjoying a glass of white during his travels. Frontera Sauvignon Blanc is fruity in character with citric and peach aromas. Light in flavor, this fresh and well-balanced sauvignon blanc is the perfect white for DaBaby and his crew.

SAY SO (Doja Cat)

Doja Cat has not been shy about sharing her tips on making a delicious cocktail. Perhaps she’ll like this one created by Cristóbal Srokowski, Ron Abuelo Global Brand Ambassador.

VERACRUZ

1 1/2 oz. Ron Abuelo 7 Años

3/4 oz. Orange juice

3/4 oz. Lime juice

1/3 oz. Honey syrup 2:1

1/2 oz. Cinnamon syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

3/4 oz. Egg white

Technique: Add all the ingredients in the shaker and dry shake so the egg white is emulsified. Then shake again with ice added. Double strain into a coupette or a martini glass and garnish with an orange peel.

EVERYTHING I WANTED (Billie Eilish)

Trivento Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($10.99)

While Billie Eilish is not quite old enough to legally enjoy wine in the US, we do think she would appreciate a brand that has been implementing environmental and social policies for more than 12 years. Since 2008, Trivento embarked on one of the company’s most important educational and inclusive initiatives by bringing in a CENS satellite classroom for their employees to complete their secondary studies. And each year, Trivento has added social and environmental actions to become one of the industry brand’s most committed to society and the environment. Through strong alliances with the United Nations Global Compact , the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) , the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) through the Argentine Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEADS) and the Network of companies for diversity., Trivento is committed to giving back in each bottle what nature has given them.

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza has an intense ruby red color, with violet notes that trend towards dark orange with time. In the nose, aromas of black pepper, tobacco, candied wild berries such as redcurrants and blackberries are perceived. In the mouth, the wine is powerful with persisting tannins and well-structured body.

DON’T START NOW (Dua Lipa)

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon ($6.99)

Dua Lipa is a fan of a glass of red. We also think she’ll love that this wine sports a QR code on its bottle that will lead one to a “Frontera Big and Bold Reds. Drink Them with Attitude” playlist. From Chile’s Central Valley, this bright and intense ruby red wine with violet reflections has aromas of fresh red fruits, together with toasted notes, highlighting coffee and chocolate. The palate offers harmonic tannins, medium body, good aftertaste. Think of it as the ideal wine to serve with red meats, cheese, spicy stews and pasta with spicy sauces.

CIRCLES (Post Malone)

Les Cadrans de Lassègue ($30)

Post Malone has shared a preference for a nice Bordeaux. Les Cadrans, named after the sundials on the facade of the château, in honor of the incredible sun exposure that Château Lassègue enjoys, is the estate’s second label. It is meticulously produced by sixth and seventh generation Vignerons Pierre and Nicolas Seillan at the Saint-Émilion estate the family jointly owns with the Jackson Family.

SAVAGE (Megan Thee Stallion Featuring Beyoncé) 🏆

When two superstars collaborate, they should be toasted with an aptly named beverage…

CRITIC PASSION

60 ml Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon

30 ml orange juice

30 ml passion fruit

10 ml simple syrup

Ice

Orange peel and mint garnish

Shake all ingredients together (except for the orange peel and mint for garnish). Strain into wine glass over ice. Garnish with orange peel and mint leaf.
