Yesterday evening, Camelot Winery unveiled it’s new look with a Grand Re-Opening event. I was lucky enough to get invited not only to the event but to also provide some appetizers as well.
The inside looks completely different and definitely has a more welcome and cozy feel to it now. You can expect a full post on what’s new soon! The event was a huge success and many people arrived ready to check out the new look and to sip on some wine. Luckily I was able to make my way around the place a few times and got a chance to chat with friends and introduce myself to new people.
For the appetizers I made mini cheddar corn fritters using Ohio Sweet corn. I made 240 little fritters with the expectation that most people would take two. I don’t know about everyone else but Scott and I definitely had more than two!
To help celebrate the new ownership and new look of Camelot, I put together a summer inspired drink featuring one of their wines.
Andrea’s Ohio Summer Spritzer
- 1 Bottle of Camelot’s Sonoma Dry Creek Chardonnay
- 3 Peaches, sliced
- 1/2C Fresh Raspberries
- 1/2C Fresh Blueberries
- 1 Liter of Seltzer, refrigerated
In a large pitcher, add fruit and then pour wine over top. Let chill in fridge for at least six hours before serving. Gently stir occasionally as the the wine and fruit mingle in the fridge.
When ready to serve, add in the seltzer and gently mix. Serve and garnish with fruit from the pitcher.
To help keep the drinks cool, freeze some of the blueberries and raspberries. Add them to the drink when serving, they are decorative and will help keep the drink on the cool and crisp side.
