Ruffino Lumina Punch

This drink is best served like a sangria. Simply multiply the quantities by 8 and pour into a pitcher for easy serving. For the best results, allow the mixture to sit for a few hours in the fridge with the garnishes before serving so the ingredients can infuse and the drink absorbs the flavors of the fruit and sage.” – Pamela Wiznitzer

Ruffino Always Sparkling

Rosé is often misunderstood and added to drinks without considering its dimensions and complexity. Here, we play on the fruit notes and the floral elements of Ruffino Sparkling Rosé by bringing it out with the rose water and strawberry. Cognac is also a grape based spirit so it works well with the drink and provides additional depth.” – Pamela Wiznitzer
