The $0 Trick to Make Any Bottle of Wine Taste *Way* Better

I say this a lot, mostly at restaurants when I'm talking to the sommelier about choosing a glass of wine to go with dinner. There are two reasons I do this: 1) to cover my bases in case I say anything wrong (you can't blame me, I'm just a novice!) ; 2) to not-so-subtly invite the real expert to share their knowledge with me. So now that you know this about me, it should come as no surprise that I did this at a dinner where I was seated next to a wine pro: Diane Flamand, a very chic French woman who is also an oenologist (aka an expert on the production of wine) and the winemaker for Légende Bordeaux wines.

I learned a lot that night, but the most surprising thing was actually very simple (and very doable): Decant your wine.

How to Make a Shirley Temple Drink

See my privacy policy for details. The Shirley Temple drink is a classic mocktail that kids around the world love to enjoy. It’s also a great option for those who choose to abstain from alcoholic drinks. What is in a Shirley Temple drink? A Shirley Temple drink is made from two simple ingredients; ginger ale and grenadine. What is Grenadine? For those who are unfamiliar with grenadine, it’s a sweet bar syrup that is both tart and sweet. Who invented it? According to some, it’s believed to have been invented at a place called Chasen’s in West Hollywood, apparently to serve the same named child actress. Another popular mocktail is the Arnold Palmer drink which is similar in that it’s made of only two ingredients as well.
