I don't know about you, but after a long, hard day, I like to unwind out on my deck with friends and an adult beverage or two. In my house we refer to it as "Grown-Up Juice". After all, we are surrounded by toddlers all day long! Calling alcoholic beverages by this funny name tells my kids in words they can understand that this is Mommy and Daddy's "juice", and we're not sharing. Wait...That might be counter-productive, since sharing is a good thing! Perhaps selective sharing would be a better lesson in this case.
Anyway, I am not a heavy drinker by any means, but sometimes I really enjoy something fruity and exotic, like Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails. As a SheSpeaks Blogger, I recently got the opportunity to sample these cocktails. They are amazing! They come in three great flavors that utilize some of my favorite wines: Blackberry Merlot, Strawberry White Zinfandel, and White Pear Pinot Grigio. These cocktails are made with wine, but they take wine drinking to a whole new level of cool...Literally! You see, Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails come in convenient pouches that can be placed into your freezer for about 5 hours, then gently massaged and poured into a glass for some frozen, slushy goodness.
I will admit, I had to play with the freezing time a little bit. My freezer stays ridiculously cold, and 5 hours was simply too much time. When I left them in that long, they became bricks of ice! So I took them out, thawed them, and tried again. Practice makes perfect, right? I ended up only freezing them for about 45 minutes and got the right consistency. I would use the suggested freeze time as a guideline, but please note that actual time may depend on your freezer's own unique characteristics.
Overall, I really enjoyed all 3 mouthwatering flavors. My favorite would have to be the Strawberry White Zinfandel. It is sweet, refreshing, and reminds me of something almost tropical in feel. This is the perfect drink for a lazy summer afternoon.
The Blackberry Merlot is amazing, too. I paired this with a nice, thick Ribeye steak and it was fabulous! It was sweet, full-bodied, and had a rich, multidimensional blackberry flavor that complemented my meal perfectly.
The White Pear Pinot Grigio was a definite hit with my husband. You see, Pinot Grigio is his wine of choice. I prefer sweeter wines while he prefers a more dry wine. So I was definitely surprised to find that the flavors in this variety were perfectly balanced and not overly bitter like Pinot Grigios tend to be.
Overall, we were quite pleased with our Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails.These cocktails would be perfect for any outdoor summer gathering or even an intimate dinner party with friends. Or maybe even a romantic dinner for 2, should you be lucky enough to actually get private, alone time with your spouse! And if you do, I am jealous. We never get alone time here!
