Fancy Friday: Sweet Pea Apple Wine

It never fails that if I stand long enough in line, I will be suckered into buying something within reach. This week: Sweet Pea Apple Wine from Cost Plus World Market.

Initially drawn to the adorable packaging (I mean c'mon, LOOK at it) and the name, it didn't help that it was on sale for $5.99. Intrigued by the whole "apple wine" novelty factor, into the cart it went.

As I got to the front of the line, the cashier acknowledges that wine and says, "Oh this is sooo good. Not too sweet. Such a nice summer wine. It's been flying off the shelf."

Well if that's the case - I grabbed the remaining five off the display. Nothing worse than wanting something you can't have, right?

That night I took one bottle to a girl's gathering. Literally gone in four minutes.

Hence why this made the Fancy Friday list. If you're looking for a new summer drink, give this a try. Even if you're a traditionalist who likes bold red wine, you might like this refreshing change up on a warm summer night.

Pleasing as peach cobbler and refreshing as a cool glass of cider, Sweet Pea is ripe with 100% real Washington (shout-out to my home state!) grown golden delicious apple flavors, hints of peachy sweetness and a crisp, clean finish. An excellent and affordable substitute to high caloric fruity cocktails.

Who says housewives have to be desperate?

Available at Cost Plus World Market & Total Wine.
