We decided to start out by trying the Peach Bellini mix. The box said to use our favorite champagne or white wine. Since we had a bottle of Pinot Grigio on hand, we decided to use that. Making this was so easy my 3 year old could do it (except for the alcohol part of course)! The box came with two small packages which at first confused me, but then I found the little note explaining that either one large package or two small ones would be included and that we were to use the two small together in one batch. Then, we just added the mix to our 2.5 quart pitcher, added the bottle of wine and then one full wine bottle of water, mixed it up really well and then set it in the freezer for 3-4 hours.
While I was working on the wine mixer, my husband (and son) decided to mix up the Bake-A-Brewski Bread. Again, this was really easy and our son helped out. You just add a twelve ounce can or bottle of your favorite beer to the mix, pour into the pan and then pour half a stick of melted butter on top. The box also listed several add-ons you could mix in. My husband chose to add a half-cup of shredded cheddar cheese that we had leftover in the fridge.
We tried the bread first and it was really good! It came out moist and the taste was just like homemade bread. My husband choose a heavy winter lager beer, so for me the beer taste was a bit too strong, but he really loved it!
As for the frozen peach wine mixer, we loved that too! I don't drink a lot, but I do like to have something "special" so this really fit the bill. It was like a drink you can get on any tropical island or cruise ship. We even decided to drink them out of the glasses we brought home from our honeymoon cruise. My husband said he could drink the whole thing it tasted so good! I highly recommend these for any party, special occasion or just a relaxing night in.
