Enchanted Berry Bubbly 

(5 Servings)

  • 1 750Bottle Once Upon A Vine, Enchanted Woods Bubbly
  • 1 12 oz Pack Whole Cranberries
  • 1 24.5 oz Bottle Raspberry Flavor Syrup

Freeze cranberries overnight. Add a dash of raspberry syrup to each glass of sparkling wine and garnish with three frozen cranberries.

Mulled Wine Sangria 

(5 Servings)

  • 1 750ml Bottle Once Upon A Vine, Red Blend

  • 1 tsp. Ginger
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cloves
  • OPTIONAL: 20 Whole Cloves

Mix wine, brandy, honey, cinnamon sticks, ginger and ground cloves in large non-aluminum pot. Cut one orange into slices and add to mixture. Bring to a boil and immediately turn down to simmer for 1 hour.

If desired, take approximately 20 whole cloves and carefully remove balls from ends. Press remaining clove (pointed end first) into whole orange. To avoid breaking the star-shaped tops press in with thumbnail between the prongs. When finished, cut the orange in half and add to mixture.

Mix wine, cider, liqueur, and cinnamon in large non-aluminum pot. Turn on low heat and warm to desired drinking level. Put whisk and metal bowl in freezer for at least 15 minutes. When ready to serve, mix heavy whipping and vanilla in cold metal bowl using whisk. Whisk until mixture becomes fluffy. Top drinks with mixture.
