Ah, the ever popular Rubio. What? You've never heard of it?
Don't feel bad...I just made it up. Actually, Tim and I made it up, as you can see in this week's Cocktail Hour video.
The history is we made some wine from the juice of our grape vine in the backyard. Not a great wine, in fact just barely drinkable. What to do?
At my wife's suggestion, we poured a healthy slug of amaretto into it and...voila...something much better emerged.
If you don't have your own barely drinkable, homemade wine, don't sweat it. Just get a really cheap bottle of rose, put a shot and a half of amaretto in it and you can have your own Rubio.
Where'd the name come from? Well, watch the video (it's short, only 4 minutes) for the answer...
