Creamy Onion Soup is a favorite of mine. I usually make it with white wine but I kicked it up a notch with White Moscato for #MoscatoDay!
I prefer this type of onion soup to traditional beef based broth kinds. There is something about a creamy, soup texture I really enjoy. The sweetness of Moscato enhances the onion’s natural sweetness without overpowering it.
A great start to a Moscato meal if you ask me!
How are you celebrating #MoscatoDay? If dessert is more to your liking, I have a Peach and Apricot Cake you might enjoy!
Maybe a little dried fruit that was soaked in Moscato, cheese and crackers for an evening snack?
A quick confession: I prefer Pink Moscato for drinking, white for cooking and red for sauces! White blends well with poultry and seafood marinades, pasta dishes and desserts. I find pink to be enjoyable with light meals and for sipping as an after dinner treat. Red makes great sauces. It especially tastes great reduced to a syrup and drizzled over chocolate cake or ice cream. Even waffles!
Happy Moscato Day!
