Citrus, so after I had Besamim Liqueur, I moved on to another product from Sukkah Hill Spirits, ETROG Liqueur. ETROG Liqueur is a citrus liqueur. Very bright and full of flavor without being too sweet, again I must say it is perfectly balanced. After a few drinks, I said this would be great with vodka, and we mixed it over ice, then strained it into a martini glass making a very citrus yet not sweet (like a lemon drop martini) cocktail that was delicious.
Looking at the website I learned Etrog is a lightly sweet citrus liqueur featuring the aroma of citrus blossoms. An Etrog is an ancient heirloom citrus fruit grown in only a handful of orchards worldwide. Bottled at 76 proof (36% alc/vol), Etrog is excellent chilled, over ice or as a base for bright strong cocktails. On the Besamim website I did find a Cocktail Recipe page for some great drink ideas. It has won many Gold Medals, from SIP Awards, Craft Competition, Tastings… I purchased two bottles from Mission Wine & Spirits liquor store that will ship it right to your house.
Retro cereal French Toast Crunch back, General Mills just reintroduced French Toast Crunch, a popular cereal that was around for a decade, mid 90’s- mid 2000’s. It’s back and will soon be on the breakfast table of both hip kids and hipsters. Mom’s and hipster girlfriend’s don’t wait for him to ask, just surprise him and pick up a box next time your at the supermarket.
French Toast Crunch is a General Mills product, it falls in line with a donut or sugar cereal for nutrition value. Tastes like french toast, with a maple flavor and looks like mini pieces of French toast. For a weekend treat that will make just about anyone happy, this is your go to cereal.

Get Barefoot, Wine and have a great time, with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine, highly recommended to me. So I had to give it a try, and what do I think, Fun Wine! We were barbecuing and there was a little of everything to eat and drink, we opened a bottle of Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and it was a hit.
I looked it up, on their site they recommend it chilled, chill out wine! Tastes, rip, explosive flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and luscious cherry. Time to uncork, summer, summer, summertime, right about that, it is sweet, light and fruity perfect for summer. Barefoot recommends pairing Barefoot Sweet Red Wine with grilled veggies, marinated steaks and BBQ.
Price – $6.99 – 750mL Bottle, it is sweet, but it also says clearly on the label Sweet Red Wine. I don’t usually drink sweet but I did like it, I usually recommend wine with food, yet you can drink this straight. Also we did try making a Barefoot Sweet Red Wine Wine Cooler (s) (tall Collins glass with ice, fill half way with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and the other half with 7-Up, garnish with a cherry). We also made Barefoot Sweet Red Wine Wine Spritzer (s) (tall Collins glass with ice, fill half way with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and the other half with club soda, garnish with a lemon twist). Super refreshing and a whole lot of fun, for the price you can’t beat it!
