When I got home I went straight to the Vine Smoothie website. There I learned exactly what this was I just purchased. Vine Smoothie is a combination of all natural, gluten free flavors, French chardonnay and Holland's famous dutch cream. They come in 4 flavors peach, berry, pineapple coconut and strawberry. According to the website, all you need to do is chill and pour. I decided to go a tiny step further and blend, with our Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender, with ice to make a smoothie.

Mmmmm, mmmmmm! It was delish!! Sweet (but not too sweet) and very easy to drink. I kept mine pretty light, but depending on the amount of ice you use, yours can be as strong as you want it. I also tried it straight. That I found to be a bit too strong. I added a few ice cubes, let it mix for a minute or two then took a sip.
Again, I was thoroughly pleased. The only downside, it was so yummy, the bottle was empty before we had a chance to try some of the recipes.
I cannot imagine anything better on a hot summer day. I know what I'll be bringing to all the cookouts and events I'll be attending this summer.
I'm currently scouring my local wine shops for the other flavors. As soon as I get my hands on another bottle, I will let you know how the recipes go!
