DRINK THIS: a winerita is perfect for summer sipping

Combine, pour, enjoy!

Cool down with a winerita!

Both Hemman Winery in Brazeau, Missouri, and The Barrens Winery in Perryville, Missouri, are serving up these summer specials.

While each has their differences, the basis for the drink is simple.

All you need is 2 cups of non-alcoholic margarita mix and a bottle of your favorite wine.

We suggest a light, sweet, white wine.

You might consider a Pinot Grigio, a Riesling or a Moscato.

Of course, you can kick it up a notch with a shot or two of triple sec and some fresh fruit for garnish.

And don’t be afraid to serve it over ice– it’s a winerita, not a glass of wine!

A lot of folks describe ‘wineritas’ as being very refreshing, so it’s a really great choice if you’re going to be sitting outside.
