SheSpeaks has teamed up with Arbor Mist, and in the process I was asked to try them out. All summer long my SO and I have been trying to make our patio area a place of serenity. We found furniture that wasn’t being utilized any longer, and continued to add more and more to it to make it our place to go and relax.
We added plants, fun lights, and shelving to make it feel more and more homey, and more like a place of serenity, and it’s become one of our favorite places to hang out especially during those summer, now almost fall nights.
When our frozen wine cocktails arrived, we decided to make a night of it by cooking a nice meal, eating outside, and finishing with a few rounds of cocktails.
What’s really nice about the Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails is how easy they are. You buy them at the store and you just throw them in the freezer. When they come out, you just squeeze them into your glass:
They come in 3 varieties: Pinot Grigio White Pear, Strawberry White Zinfindel, and Blackberry Merlot. I, myself, started out with the Strawberry White Zin, and I loved it. The first pouch didn’t really freeze all that much, but I honestly didn’t mind it.
I gave the drink over to my SO for him to try and his first words were, “wow, that’s thick, and syrupy.”
We then decided to try out the Pinot Grigio White Pear. This one was definitely slushie, and I was really hesitant because as of late, I haven’t been a fan of slushies. However, the pinot grigio white pear worked really well as a slushie. I let it melt to liquid form, and I actually preferred it as a slushie.
And then later in the evening we brought out the Blackberry Merlot. Now, I am not much of a merlot fan, most likely the reason why I was putting this off, but the Arbor Mist Frozen Wine brought out the sweetness of it. I’m still not a fan, but it was something I could still down easily.
And the verdicts:
Me: I’m a huge fan of these frozen wine cocktails, and will definitely make use of them for some fun cooler evenings ahead. They would have been GREAT for a lot of late night summer evenings.
My SO: I’m not a fan of these. They’re just too thick and too syrupy for me, and much too sweet.
And well, you can decide your own opinions from our cats:
