    Looking good my gurst will love this drink
    going to try this thanks

  2. These look so lovely. It is nice to have something that is special and festive to celebrate the new year with especially when it is hard for me to stay up past 10. I would like to try the sangria recipe since I like chardonnay.

  3. The drinks looks so pretty. I am usually the designated driver since I dont drink, but some would be fine minis the alcohol! I like the winter thaw cooler because it has raspberries. I llike drinks that have nice garnishes.

  4. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    Since I love cocktails with fruit I like both recipes. I think my favorite is the Vineyard Sangria Raspberry recipe because it contains less strong alcohol and more fruit juices.

  5. Tamra Phelps says:

    I don’t think I’ll be doing any parties this New Year’s Eve, but these would be great for any party. I’d have to do something besides raspberries since I have an allergy, lol.

  6. wow drinks have changed since I became of age. I especially like the Winter’s Thaw Cooler Recipe. It not only sounds like it would taste great, but it looks so festive, too!

  7. I want to try the Vineyard Raspberry Sangria Recipe. The flavors just appeal to me most. Thanks.

  8. That sounds so nice. We make one with Apple Juice and Cherry Juice with Lime that is very nice too.

    Wow, these drinks look nice! I am seriously considering starting to drink, and these would be great to start with. Especially the Winter’s Thaw Cooler, with the raspberry and mint garnish. It looks so pretty!
