While recently out in Northern California's Sonoma County wine country, I got to hang out with one of my favorite bloggers- Megan from Freckled Italian. Megan loves good food and wine- and we had so much fun coming up with an amazing series that combines the two that we will be sharing into fall. Today I invited her to share her secrets to an amazingly easy, delicious, and elegant brunch dish that is sure to wow any crowd-- Bloody Mary Oysters!
These little shooters combine raw oysters with the flavors of bloody marys- tomato, dill, horseradish, and a lovely salty kick from the oyster. They are spicy and complex, and pair perfectly with Matanzas Creek Winery Sauvignon Blanc for a memorable brunch. - the crisp citrus and strong acidity cut the horseradishes' heat and make the tomatoes pop.
If you've followed me on the blog or on Instagram, you know I have a major thing for Matanzas Creek- their winery is beyond gorgeous, and their wines are spectacular (my husband and I signed up for one of their wine club levels after their wine and cheese tasting- can't wait to get our first shipment!!). I'm so excited to bring Megan here today to share this awesome recipe that compliments one of my favorite white wines!
These oysters were a huge hit at our party- and I know they will be for you!
Here's Megan to take it away:
While Courtney and I were in California two weeks ago, we ate some pretty fantastic food and drank some absolutely delicious wine; so I couldn’t help but combine two of my favorite things--Bloody Marys and raw oysters--to create my new favorite dish. Bloody Mary Oysters are simple but elegant and would make a really impressive appetizer at your next brunch.
Pair them with Matanzas Creek Winery Sauvignon Blanc for a memorable brunch. and you’re ready for a party! We both love Matanzas Creek- their winery is gorgeous, and their varietals are some of my absolute favorites.
