We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at the Napa Valley, CA festival Live In The Vineyard. Of course it wouldn’t be a festival, or Napa, if we didn’t try a little wine while rocking out to acts like Goo Goo Dolls, Tegan and Sara and New Kids On The Block. We didn’t bring back any to share with everyone, but here are five fine wines we tasted that reminded us of artists who also regularly intoxicate us. Vote for which pairing you like best.
Nicki Minaj + Pink Moscato Bubbly
If we want to mix it up for a good night out, we often reach for bubbles, ‘natch. It makes us feel classy. But mix fizzy wine goodness with some pink moscato and you’ve got a frisky flavor that takes things up a notch on the ratchet and loving life scale. Of course, we immediately thought of Miss Pink Friday herself Nicki Minaj as the perfect embodiment of sweet, flirty, bright and energetic with all of her schizophrenic rap personas.
