Summer has a new name; Barefoot Refresh! Lively, flavorful and refreshing, it’s the latest from Barefoot Wine of California. It comes in five different varieties, Crisp White, Crisp Red, Summer Red, Perfectly Pink and Sweet White. In short, there's a Refresh for everyone on your backyard barbeque party list. Served over ice, it’s the perfect beverage companion for summer. I had a glass the other day before dinner it’s not dry and its not too sweet and has very little alcohol. I thought it was prefect. It's a terrific alternative to beer and those sugary-sweet soft drinks and caffeine energy drinks. Refresh can take you from the beginning of the party right through to the end. Start with the Crisp White or Summer Red on the rocks as an aperitif. You can also make a mean Margarita or Swingin's Sangria with them. They go great along with summertime salads, shrimp cocktail or crab dip. Tangy ribs right off the grill taste even better when they're washed down with a cool glass of the Summer Red. Finish it all off with a slice of Key Lime Pie and chilled Sweet White, and you have the makings of a perfect summer afternoon or evening!
