Wine coolers – aah, wine coolers.  I do believe they were the first alcoholic beverage I ever tried.  My tastes quickly evolved to fancier things like cosmos and wine, surely in part because of the stigma associated with wine coolers.  You know, that they suck?  Well these don’t suck.  In fact, they are pretty great.  These are what wine coolers should be, but probably never could be in the bottled form because they would lose all the wonderful fresh fruit flavor.

These are fantastic for entertaining on a summer’s night.  The novelty of homemade wine coolers was a big hit with my friends, and so was the flavor.  I used a Riesling and it seemed just right to me, but you can use your favorite white wine.  I’m already looking forward to trying more flavor variations, and I think it is fair to say I have a lot of friends willing to partake in those endeavors.
