Handing a glass of good wine or bubbly to guests as they enter your home or holiday soirée will bring instant cheer, help them relax, and stimulate socializing.
It can be as simple as, a glass of spumante, a low sugar rosé, or a mimosa.
To save time, set up a drink table near the door with glasses of good clean spumante and hand one to each guest as they arrive. Pre-make a pitcher of winter solstice mimosas or a crock pot of good clean mulled wine. A glass of good clean rosé is a festive welcome wine for all seasons and pallets.
Winter Solstice Mimosa: 5 ounces good clean spumante, 1 ounce cranberry juice, silver sugar, rosemary sprigs, whole cranberries.
Mimosa Instructions: Line the rim of the glasses with a lemon wedge and dip in silver sugar. Thread rosemary sprigs with cranberries. Pour spumante and cranberry juice into glass. Lay prepared rosemary sprigs over rim of glass.
Sparks will fly when you serve great wine as welcome wine...and don't forget to pour yourself a glass and relax into host mode before your guests arrive. Sip clean wine and you'll be in good clean company and have all the good clean fun.
