To toast the annual spring thaw, Jackson-Triggs Chef Tim Mackiddie adds a twist to the traditional white wine spritzer with a series of herb and flower-infused cocktails. Made with their Proprietors’ Selection Pinot Grigio, Vidal, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé, the fresh and fruity flavours are a DIY dream and the perfect complement to any party or picnic.


The Grigio Waltz

4-6 oz Jackson-Triggs Pinot Grigio
2 slices cucumber
1 tbsp pomelo or grapefruit
1 tbsp simple syrup
1/8 tsp pomelo or grapefruit zest
Sprinkling of cilantro

Muddle pomelo, zest and cilantro in a martini shaker. Add simple syrup and Jackson-Triggs Pinot Grigio. Shake and strain liquid into a mason jar or cocktail glass. Garnish with cucumber slice on glass. Serve chilled.
