Let's Make Non Alcoholic Wine!September 26, 2014
For the non-alcoholic drinkers who want to sip like Olivia Pope.
As I tried my absolute best to keep myself from counting down the hours prior to the Scandal Season 4 premier, I found myself mentally preparing for the inevitable twists and turns of my favorite show. Since red wine and popcorn seem to be the only things we've ever seen Ms. Pope consume, it's become an unofficial snack for millions of viewers around the globe. Since I'm not much of a drinker (and the ultimate DIY-er of everything), I decided I was going to make my own faux version of red wine and pair it with Twizzlers since I don't really like popcorn either.
I headed to the grocery store and stood in the middle of the juice aisle for about 5 minutes thinking up different combinations to get the look and taste of wine without the alcohol... Somehow, I got pretty dang close with the following:
1 part cranberry juice to 1 part white grape sparkling water
stir the mixture then serve.
Of course, you can always adjust the measurements to match your taste, but I must say this would be prefect for guests that don't drink or if you just want an alternative to the real thing.
