Twisting by the Pool!

May 18, 2012

One of my favourite summer songs is “Twisting by the Pool” by Dire Straits released in 1983. It is the type of song that no one can resist when played at a social. You just have to move!

I have the same reaction with our Twisted Mist Lime Margarita/Hard Pink Lemonade wines. As soon as a bottle is opened you have to grab a glass with ice and enjoy and yes- I do have the urge to dance!

This year’s Twisted Mist is a split kit, you get 15 bottles of Lime Margarita and 15 bottles of Hard Pink Lemonade. The best part is it takes only 28 days to make and there is no aging required.


Hard Pink Lemonade:

Don’t be fooled by the pale pink hue – this Hard Pink Lemonade packs a punch. Fresh lemons mix with notes of pink grapefruit and candied peel, and a light sweetness softens the lemon pucker making for an easy-drinking treat. Serve this cooler-style drink ice cold on a hot afternoon.

Lime Margarita:

Tart lime and tequila flavours form the base of this classic margarita. A touch of sweetness offsets the sour citrus but still leaves that zesty lime explosion. Enjoy over crushed ice.


So grab yourself a Twisted Mist kit and in 4 weeks you’ll be Twisting too!
