Got Wine?Do you have wine for summer?

Great Beer!
Made Easy!

It’s Margarita Time!

June 17, 2011

As the weather gets warmer- more people are making the Twisted Mist wine cocktail kits. This great product (available in the summer only) allows you to make 30 bottles of ready to drink Mojitos, Lime Margaritas and Strawberry Margaritas. There’s also a Lime/Strawberry Margarita combo pack which allows you to make 15 bottles of each.

‘Twisted Mist is perfect for summer entertaining!

Tiki says 'Summer is more fun with Twisted Mist!

You make Twisted Mist just like a regular wine kit- although there are a couple of differences in the instructions that you should take note of:

1- There are 2 packs of yeast. Use them both. 
2- There are 2 small f-packs. Use both JUST BEFORE BOTTLING. 
3- Do not filter Twisted Mist. They are designed to be ‘opaque’ as Margaritas tend to be.

All this information is of course in the instructions that come with the kit- but as we like to consider ourselves ‘experienced pros’ we tend to ‘skim’ them sometimes…

That being said, if you have any questions stop by your favourite Wine Sense location or give us a call- and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.

The warm weather is here- so get your Twisted Mist kits ready and be ready to have fun this summer!
