Sorry this is late, but we went to a Pure Romance party hosted by one of our good friends last night and I was a bit distracted… The theme of the party was pretty in pink, and we were asked to bring something fun and fresh along, so I decided to mix up some adult beverages. I needed something that was universally appealing, like a punch, but I also wanted something that was a bit more sophisticated, like a sangria; however, I waited until the last minute, so I went with a Sparkling Strawberry Wine recipe I found on Pinterest.
I grabbed the ingredients: a bottle of sweet white wine (Moscato works), a half a bottle of Sierra Mist (about 3 cans of any lemon-lime soda works), and a bag of frozen strawberries.
The pin didn’t have any real instructions, so I winged it. I dumped most of the bag of strawberries into a pitcher.
Then I added the soda (or pop, like everyone around here calls it…).
Finally I poured in the bottle of white wine.
Don’t forget to stir it, so the strawberries don’t become a giant ice cube. I poured a glass to test it before serving, and it tasted remarkably like Arbor Mist.
I may try a different flavor next time, because the blackberry Arbor Mist was always our favorite…
