Concord Grape Swizzle

I invented a new drink last night. I’m calling it the “Concord Grape Swizzle”. I think it has a fun little ring to it. My husband picked up a bottle of Swedish Hill Concord Grape wine for us to enjoy. We love our New York State wines, especially the nice sweet wines.

As I was sipping the wine, I thought, I wonder what it might be like if I added some bubbly ginger ale and a slice of lime? Both of which I just happened to have in the fridge. The result was a yummy, new favorite drink!

Instructions:
1. Fill a glass 1/3 full of Swedish Hill Concord Grape Wine (Use grape juice as a nice non-alcoholic substitute.)
2. Fill another 1/3 of the glass with your favorite Ginger Ale.
3. Add ice and a slice of lime. (I threw a few cranberries in too, just because.)
4. Drink and enjoy.

Cheers!

Cookies for Kids, Wine for Moms

My sister-in-law hosted the 2nd Annual “Cookies for Kids, Wine for Moms” event yesterday. What a genius idea! There were 8 moms in attendance. 12 kids. And 1 dog.

My nieces rolled the dough…

And cut the cookies, before the crowds arrived.

There were lots of cookie cutters in Christmas shapes. (And even a Christmas Cow!)

The decorating ended, and play began. For the kids anyway. The moms cleaned. And chatted.
