Being a mom is a tough job. After creating and giving birth, our job has just begun and our little bundles of joy keep us busy morning till night, and often times back to morning again without a break. As a result, every once and a while, mommies desperately deserve a cocktail.
While my nights out with the girls just don’t happen as much these days now that I have kids, after a busy day when the kids are in bed, it’s nice just to enjoy a few minutes for me and have a grown up beverage. I love the frozen drinks at restaurants, but for just me, it’s too much work and mess to dig out the blender at home, so I jumped at the opportunity when I was recently offered the opportunity to review Arbor Mist Frozen Wines.
This weekend I had the opportunity to try out Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails courtesy of SheSpeaks and these new frozen cocktails are a tasty new way to enjoy great-tasting wine with a splash of fruit, frozen right at home
Great for a backyard party, pool day, barbeque or casual get-together with friends and family – simply freeze, squeeze and enjoy. Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails require no mixing of ingredients, ice or blenders. Simply place the liquid pouch in the freezer for five hours, gently massage, tear open the top, squeeze to pour into a glass and enjoy a smooth frozen wine cocktail with all the great taste and same alcohol level as Arbor Mist Wines. Here are the three varieties that they have to offer.
Bursting with aromas of ripe blackberries and fresh guava, this naturally ﬂavored frozen Merlot adds a new twist to the classic Arbor Mist wine.
Strawberry White Zinfandel is redeﬁned in this new spin on an Arbor Mist classic. Aromas of fresh-picked strawberries create an enticing bouquet that integrates perfectly with this well-balanced and smooth, naturally ﬂavored frozen wine
Frozen White Pear Pinot Grigio is a true delight! Refreshingly smooth, this frozen wine has a taste that is rich with natural ﬂavors of ripe pear and hints of apple and citrus.
We had the tough task (ha!) of taste testing these cocktails over the weekend and they were great! All three flavors have distinct and very different flavors, but they’re all super easy to prepare and we all liked every variety. My personal favorite was the White Pear, it had the smoothest flavor and the Blackberry Merlot was definitely the strongest. However all of our taste testers enjoyed them all.
Overall, whether or not you’re already an Arbor Mist fan, these new drinks are a great way to enjoy a cool frozen cocktail on a hot summer’s day or on your patio as a refreshing drink to wrap up the work week. There’s no messing with blenders or mixes, and just freeze, squeeze and serve. Look for them at retailers near you and for more information on Arbor Mist visit www.arbormist.com.
