Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise is a sweet, fragrant white wine from the Rhone region of France that can be served either as an aperitif or as a dessert wine. A variety of Muscat wines can be found in most wine stores.


  • ¾ cup Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise

  • ½ cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc

  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish

  • 8 small or 4 medium oranges


  1. Heat Muscat, white wine, and 6 rosemary sprigs in a saucepan over medium-low heat until warm.

  2. Meanwhile, cut away peel and pith from oranges, keeping the segments intact, or, if desired, cut between membranes with a paring knife to release segments. Divide whole oranges or segments among 4 serving bowls. Pour wine mixture over top. Garnish with rosemary, and serve immediately.
