Muscat cocktail recipes

As a light and fresh style of Muscat, we serve Scion's Muscat Nouveau chilled. 

In summer, a muscat-based cocktail really hits the spot. Here are some recipes you might like to try at home with our Muscat Nouveau (or Rose Muscat from previous vintages would also do the trick). 

Scion Muscat Nouveau cocktails

MUSCAT NOUVEAU & STRAWBERRY FIZZ

With some beautiful strawberry farms on our doorstep in North East Victoria, we were inspired by the classic combination of rose water and strawberry for this cocktail. It's easiest to make this cocktail as a batch - this recipe makes about 6 cocktails.

Ingredients

1 x 500ml bottle of Muscat Nouveau
500g strawberries
2 tsp caster sugar
soda water

Method

  • Hull any larger strawberries and reserve 6 for garnishing
  • Macerate strawberries in sugar
  • Blitz Muscat Nouveau and strawberries in blender
  • Strain mix through sieve (optional) and serve over ice cubes
  • Top with a splash of soda water and garnish with a beautiful strawberry

MUSCAT NOUVEAU SPRITZER

The beauty of this cocktail is its simplicity, which means the varietal flavours of the Muscat still shine through. The lime's acidity cuts through the natural sweetness. Refreshing!

Ingredients

60 - 90ml Scion Muscat Nouveau per serve
soda water
fresh lime

Method

  • Fill a highball glass with crushed ice
  • Fill glass two-thirds full with Muscat Nouveau
  • Top with soda water
  • Squeeze in juice of a quarter of a lime, or to taste
  • Add a couple of extra slices of lime to garnish  

THE VENETIAN

Monster Kitchen & Bar at Canberra's Hotel Hotel kindly supplied this recipe, which their bartender created for a Rutherglen Muscat Mixology event at their venue. If you don't have any apricot liqueur hanging around in your cupboard, we suggest just adding an extra splash of Muscat Nouveau.    

Ingredients

30ml Scion Muscat Nouveau
15ml Aperol
20ml apricot liqueur (Monster recommends Vedrenne brand)
15ml freshly pressed lemon juice
prosecco for topping up
basil sprig for garnish 

Method

  • Pour first four ingredients into a white wine glass
  • Fill with ice
  • Top up with Prosecco
  • Garnish with fresh basil
