Beach wine.. What is it? Does it count as a homemade cocktail? It’s walking the line, dancing with the spirit of what one can claim as a cocktail. Basically it is wine from a box with lots of ice and maybe some fruit. I like Target’s Pinot Grigio. Each little box holds 3 glasses. The best part of beach wine is the experience. The happiest place on earth, for me, is the beach. The warmth of the sun. The cool wind blowing away my stress and worries. The kiss from my hubby with dried salt on his lips. Yep beach wine. I highly recommend it. Recipe One plastic glass with lid and straw. Handful of ice. any kind of fruit. Box wine. Pour wine over ice.. add fuit. add more ice as needed.
