Spiking Top Ramen With Rosé Is The Kitchen Power Move Of 2019

Who says you can’t make ramen fancier? We just took the popular, bubbly rosé and did just that.

This Rosé Top Ramen takes a standard white wine cream sauce and gives it a fun twist. In this instance, rosé wine is used to add some aromatic, rich notes to a creamy blend of lemon, cream, and Parmesan cheese.

The Nissin Top Ramen with no added MSG plays a starring role, making it an easy dish to whip up in no time at all, while adding a punch of flavor from the seasoning packet. Together, this makes for a luxurious, “treat yourself” meal that you can put together in mere minutes.

To create this Rosé Nissin Top Ramen for yourself, peep the recipe below.

Ingredients
1 package Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 pinch red chili flakes + some for optional garnish
1 pinch ground pepper
½ tablespoon lemon juice
¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese + some for optional garnish
1 ½ cups rosé wine
Chopped parsley, as optional garnish

Servings: 1

Directions

Step 1
Bring a saucepan of water to boil over high heat. Once boiling, add 1 package of Top Ramen noodles. Cook noodles for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Step 2
Heat olive oil in a medium frying pan on high heat. Once hot, add chopped shallots, garlic, chili flakes, and pepper. Sauté until transparent. Then, add wine. Allow wine to reduce by half, then add heavy cream and stir. Set to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Step 3
Add flavor packet and parmesan cheese to the cream sauce. Once incorporated, stir in lemon juice.

Step 4
Transfer cooked noodles to a skillet and add sauce. Toss until coated evenly. Serve immediately, and garnish with parmesan cheese, parsley, and more chili flakes!

Minibar Delivery Gets Into The Wine Biz, Connects Customers To Vineyards

If you need a great bottle of wine for that romantic dinner or a client and want to go beyond the usual rosé, Minibar Delivery may have just the bottle for you.

The on-demand alcohol delivery service recently announced that it is launching Vineyard Select, a nationwide direct-to-consumer wine shipping service that connects customers with independent vineyards, not typically sold in stores, for wine deliveries to their home or office.

To order, wine lovers would need to download the Minibar Delivery app or visit the website and enter the delivery address. They can then browse the wine section to shop from curated vineyards, as well as explore each vineyard and its products. The Vineyard Select launch partners include Penrose Hill, Uproot Wines, and The Blending Lab to offer a variety of wines that fit every price point, with minimum orders that start at $45.

“Direct to consumer wine shipment is a natural expansion for Minibar Delivery,” said Lara Crystal, co-CEO and co-Founder of Minibar Delivery via a statement. “Our customers are wine lovers – wine is the top selling category on our platform. There are so many incredible winemakers out there that aren’t available in traditional liquor stores. With Vineyard Select, we can open up a whole new world of wine to our customers and connect vineyards with a new, enthusiastic customer base.”

Vineyard Select also benefits vineyard partners as they leverage the platform to reach a new marketplace and educate customers on their wine varietals.

The launch of the Vineyard Select program marks a key growth milestone for Minibar Delivery, following its recent influx of $5M in investment capital. In addition to its service of on-demand alcohol delivery in 37 markets across the country, Minibar Delivery makes it easy to send a gift across the country, book a professionally-trained bartender on demand, and access a dedicated concierge service to answer all spirits-related questions.
