This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Arbor Mist
Last month me and my husband were kids free for the evening, so we decided to stop and pick up some snacks and a bottle of wine. I immediately noticed Sparkling Wine by Arbor Mist. The thing you need to know about me is that I like my wine sparkly and I like my Arbor Mist, so without hesitation, I picked up a bottle of the raspberry sparkling.
"We're getting fancy tonight." I told my husband, as I put the bottle in the cart.
I was expecting it to be over the top sweet, but to my surprise, it wasn't. Just a hint of raspberry flavor. I really enjoyed it-- crisp, bubbly and not overly sweet or fruity. (I bet you're glad I'm not a Professional Reviewer of Wine after reading that, right? I TRIED!)
It's definitely something I wouldn't hesitate to share with guests in my home.
Which is why I was happy to be a part of this BlogHer review. It's a product I've tried, a product I like and one I think you'll like too.
I was asked to put together a party themed basket using Arbor Mist Sparkle wine.
I have created what I believe to be an awesome Party in a Basket.
You know how crazy life can get around the holidays, yes? The stress of planning meals, cooking meals, cleaning the house before the family comes over. Decorating, buying gifts, creating holiday cards. It can be overwhelming.
I can't think of a better way to get away from it all then to have a Girl's Night In!
We'd open a chilled bottle of Arbor Mist Sparkling. There would be plenty of snacks. Cheese, salami, crackers, olives STUFFED WITH FETA CHEESE. And of course, chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. There would be music playing in the background while we eat, sip our Arbor Mist Sparkle wine and gossip. After we we're stuffed from the drinks and snacks, we could play a game or watch a couple of Chick Flicks. Because, seriously, no Girls Night In is complete without a little Patrick Swayze.
Sounds fun and delicious. Admit it.
