Winter Warming and New Year Celebrating – with our without alcohol

Posted on December 29, 2013

The New Year is almost here and winter has most certainly arrived. There is still celebrating to be done and plenty of warming by the fire. There are also those “Resolutions” to deal with. If your New Year’s Resolutions include reducing or eliminating alcohol, or just if you just want to avoid morning headaches, we have a couple of tasty ideas. With all of the extra calories that come with the Holiday Season festivities, VinSanté with its low – 10% sugar content can help to not increase the holiday bulge. These recipes, of course, use VinSanté, so will reduce sugar intake as well.


Mulled (Un)-Wine – without alcohol (or a reduced alcohol version)

Pour one bottle of VinSanté Syrah/Zinfandel in a non-aluminum sauce pan.

Add 1 sliced orange, 8 whole cloves and 2 cinnamon sticks.

Warm until steamy and serve.

(For the low alcohol version add brandy to taste.)

Celebration Punch

One Bottle of VinSanté Sauvignon Blanc

8 oz bottle of Pom, Pomegranate Juice

10 oz Izze Clementine Soda

Combine and serve with a squeeze/twist of lemon in each glass

(For the low alcohol version, replace the Izze Clementine soda with a small amount of your favorite orange liquor and sparkling water to taste.)
