I’m mixing things up today. Instead of focusing on the food, I’m bringing the adult beverage–the item that rounds out every Finger Food Friday–front and center. But first, have I ever told you that I used to love wine? Yes. Believe it or not, this craft-beer-loving hophead was once a fan of wine–especially big California reds. Then I had kids and I couldn’t drink it anymore. My tastes just changed. Don’t know why. And it doesn’t make any sense, especially considering most women drink more wine after they have kids. Anyway, over the years I’ve tried to reacquire a taste for it but it’s never been the same. The biggest disappointment is when I convince myself that a pricier bottle will be more appealing and I end up wasting half the bottle. This happened just last week as a matter of fact. I bought a bottle of Cabernet that I’m sure many of you would have loved. I, on the other hand, struggled to finish one glass. Fortunately, while I was wincing and flinching my way through that pour I was also flipping through a Cooking Light magazine that included a recipe for a merlot granita. Let’s just say I had a aha moment. I rushed to my computer to Google variations on that “theme,” pulled together a quick recipe (based predominately on the one in the magazine) and proudly transformed my undrinkable vino and a couple of baskets of fresh berries into this delightfully refreshing boozy slushy. It’s not overly boozy. Just boozy enough to let you know what’s in it. And the hint of cinnamon and citrus? It’s spot-on.
