This delicate and sweet drink would compliment a weekend brunch or afternoon soiree. Moscato d’Asti is a sparkling white wine; it’s similar to champagne, but sweeter and slightly less bubbly. The alcohol content is half that of a normal table wine, making it appropriate for daytime celebrations. When paired with raspberries soaked in crème de cassis (blackcurrant liquer), the drink takes on a delicious flavor and a lovely reddish hue.
