Lush Wine Mixes - Organic Wine Cocktails

I enjoy a cocktail every once in a while, especially during the holidays or off on some Mexican beach (which I haven't been to in a very long time.)  My To-Go drink is always wine.  I love wine.  Some may think I'm a wine addict, but a glass of wine seems to make everything better...plus I feel sophisticated drinking it from my wine glass!




But what better way to enjoy a glass of wine, than with a wine cocktail!  You know, the kind of chilled or frozen drink you get that contains wine in it...Sangria, for example.  I have made Sangrias on a couple of occasions and let me tell you, it is one of my favorite drinks to make and to enjoy.  The fruity taste of the fruit infused in the wine and what ever other ingredient I decided to add to it.  But by the time you buy all the ingredients to make your Sangria (oranges, lemons, strawberries, wine, ginger ale and any other liquor), you may end up paying a fortune for it.  




Lush Wines has made this process so much simpler!  No more cutting up endless amounts of fruit or adding ginger ale and guessing at any other liquor you may think you may need in your Sangria.  Lush Wines has a wide variety of different organic cocktail mixes, besides Sangrias, to make your organic cocktail in a flash.  All you have to do is empty a 750ml of wine into a large pitcher, empty the contents of the Lush Wines into the wine and add a wine bottle of water...stir and mix well...and you have yourself a Sangria!




You can serve Lush Wines Sangria Organic Cocktail mixes in several ways.  You can serve it over ice, serve it chilled or place it in the freezer for approximately 6-8 hours and serve it frozen.  I prefer my Sangria chilled, in other words, I love to place it in my freezer for about 2 hours, where it's nice and cold and then drink it....YUMMO!

Let me tell you, the Lush Wines Organic Cocktail mix I used to make the Sangria, was not too sweet nor too tart.  It was the perfect blending of the mix to make the perfect Sangria!  When I first tried Lush Wines Sangria Mix, I was pleasantly pleased.  It tasted like Lush Wines actually infused several types of fruit into this powder mix!  How did they do this?  I could taste the lemon, the strawberry and other fruits in this drink.  Lush Wines takes the guess work out of creating a Sangria from scratch!  Better yet, the mix actually enhances the wine...not hide it.

Lush Wines Organic Cocktail Mixes are organic.  They contain no Dairy, Gluten, Egg or Nut. Once mixed, a 5 oz. glass of cocktail has only 100 calories!  Lush Wines Organic Cocktail Mixes contain 30% - 50% less sugar than other wine slush mixes. So you can have a guilt free cocktail anytime!
