Sinks' Drinks - Christmas Edition

December 18, 2014

Tis' the season to curl up next to a fire and sip on something delicious. But what to sip? We asked Bill and Amanda for a few of their favorite wines and cocktails to sip during the holidays. These yummy drinks are sure to make those cozy night even cozier!

Wines:

Have you tried Conundrum? From Caymus winery, this wine comes in red and white and are both blends. Conundrum White brings you in with aromas of apricot, vanilla, honeysuckle, and lime zest and finished with flavors of peach, pear, and honeydew melon. Conundrum Red is quite the mystery. We dare you to try this intriguing wine and see what flavors jump out.

Kim Crawford has a special place in our heart. As the story goes, Bill and Amanda Sinks fell in love over a bottle or two of Kim Crawford. Choose between their popular Pinot Gris, Unoaked Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and the Sauvignon Blanc. You'll surely come back again and again!
