Perfect Summer Picnic with #WineOverIce

This summer picnic is sponsored by Mom it Forward and Refresh by Turning Leaf.  All opinions are my own.  Who doesn’t love a nice summer picnic paired with a tasty bottle of wine or two?  However, in this heat, all wine is best over ice.

Summer Picnic

I used the exciting #WineOverIce prize pack to create a surprise afternoon picnic for myself and hubby.  The contents of the box included everything you need for a perfect summer picnic except the food.  Two bottles of Refresh by Turning Leaf wines, two plastic wine glasses, an insulated wine carrier, reusable ice cubes, and a roll-up travel picnic blanket were included in this fun kit.

wine over ice

I have always preferred to drink wine over ice, but in this heat, it’s a must.  I cannot even imagine drinking room temperature wine when it’s 95 degrees out.  The plastic, reusable ice cubes worked out perfectly because they chill the wine without melting and watering it down.

Refresh by Turning Leaf Wines

We received a red and a white wine to try out.  Refresh is the perfect name for these type of wines, because they are, in fact, so refreshing.  There’s a slight fizz to them, making them lighter and more crisp than still wines.  The Crisp White has a citrus-y, apple flavor that is delicious and a great summer alternative to beer or a cocktail.  The Red Moscato is a bit bolder with floral notes and sweet, fruity flavors.  It also has the slight fizz that makes for a thirst-quenching treat in the heat.  Other flavor options include, Moscato and Pink Moscato.  Find more info on their Facebook Page.

Mike and I were both pleasantly surprised with these wines.  They are flavorful, yet light enough to make a delicious summer beverage.  The twist-top makes them easy to bring along to any party or picnic.  And… the $8 price tag makes them affordable, which is an extra bonus.

Refresh it Forward

adventure yum

Talk about adventures and food fun, have you checked out Adventure Yum yet?  My BBF (Best Bloggy Friend), Dawn, has created an exciting new blog where she shares her adventures both in travels, and in the kitchen.  When she’s not out exploring and experiencing exciting new activities with her family, she’s whipping up something scrumptious in her kitchen.  I want to “Refresh it Forward” and send her a prize pack.  I know she will put it to good use and probably blow my picnic out of the water!  ;)  Cheers to one of my greatest friends and colleagues.
