Ingredients
  • Half a bottle of Destalo Vinho Verde White
  • 6 freshly squeezed oranges (save some slices!)

Vinho Verde first, followed by orange juice, a bit of Triple Sec for a twist and finish with a bit of ice, according to your individual taste.  Top with a slice or two, and use the rest for decorating each flute. Serve.
