“It Tastes Like Juice!”

Hold on to your hats… This post is gonna be a quick one!

Ryan and I have plans to head over to my friend Laurel’s apartment for game night this evening, so dinner tonight had to be a fast one.

Equipped with lots of leftover turkey tenderloin from last night’s dinner, we made a mixed plate of turkey, broccoli and carrots to enjoy this evening. Our meal came together quickly  thanks to a pack of Green Giant frozen veggies.

It looks a little messy, but it got the job done!

While assembling dinner, I also enjoyed a glass of Southern Red wine that my mom bought for me to enjoy during our wine tasting at Lakeridge Winery two weeks ago.

This was Ryan’s first time trying this wine and he said, “It tastes like juice!”


Why do you think this is the only red wine I’ve ever enjoyed? 😉

Time to go to game night!

  1. I tend to like white, but any wine will work for me (:

  2. I love white wine, especially Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. I’m really not a red wine drinker at all, although I think I could stomach one that tastes like juice! Enjoy game night!

  3. I used to be white only, now I’m a HUGE fan of red… it just grew on me…

    Although one that tastes like juice may get me into trouble 😉

    Have fun @ game night!

  4. Only recently have I started to enjoy red wine. I used to only prefer the sweeter white wine. However, I will only order white wine when I’m at social events so I can avoid the purple lips and teeth that red wine tend to give me!

  5. I love white, but really love sweet ones! But i think my fave is pinot grig or reisling.

  6. My drink of choice would be Bacardi/Diet….but if i’m drinking wine it’s always white!

  7. I LOVE Pinot Noir, so I’m a red girl and can’t do the sweet ones anymore

    Since you like the sweet reds, try San Sebastian’s Red wine…it’s from Florida (St Augustine) 🙂

  8. I prefer red wine, but it did take some getting used to.

  9. i like white….but there’s this sparkling red wine i LOVE, i think it’s called magicale….

  10. I love pinot grigio. hmmm 🙂

  11. In general I think I prefer Red…but my preferences tend to change with the time of the year. Red in the winter and white in the summertime 🙂

  12. I prefer white but sometimes I really crave red.

  13. I’ve always been more of a red wine fan. It’s just so enjoyable to drink, especially compared to the vodka/diet coke mix I used to have. Eek.

    BTW, I’m not big on frozen meals, but I really like the Green Giant veggie mixes!

    • no lie, i still order vodka & diet. it’s so weird & bartenders always think i’m insane. i don’t know why, but it’s always been my go-to drink & now i like it!

  14. OH I actually really like sweet red wine. I drink wine very rarely but sweet red is so summery. I’m so new to drinking I still feel likes it’s all an adventure

  15. what a yummy way to use up leftover meats! I don’t really like wine, but if I had to chose it would be white!

  16. It has to be sweet and not overly dry. I probably prefer white over red, though not a big drinker of either. I can’t seem to find any that I’m in love with.

  17. I’m a total girly white/sparkling wine kind of girl. I’m just not a huge fan of alcoholic beverages, overall.

  18. Well, I’m not a wino… but if I WAS… I’d say I like red wine. As much as possible 😉

    BUT… a nice cool glass of Chardonnay hits the spot sometimes, too!

  19. Mmm, red, baby–all the way!

  20. I’m not a big drinker, but when I do drink, I tend to go for a margarita or a bacardi/diet. Rum is my favorite liquor though, so I like just about anything mixed with Rum. 🙂

    I love sweet white wines, and unfortunately can’t drink reds or dry whites at all. The sulfite levels are higher in dry wines – and reds specifically, and sulfites are probably the biggest of my many migraine triggers. 😦

  21. I’m a major wino!!!! I love white wine when it’s warm outside, and red wine during the colder months. I go through phases, too. I was in a Pinot Noir phase, followed by Cabernet, Riesling, and now Chardonnay. I don’t discriminate. 😉 In fact, I’m enjoying a nice, big glass of Chard as I type this out. 🙂 Wine is definitely my drink of choice. Almost tied with an extra dirty martini with 3 bleu cheese olives. Holy yum!!!!!!!

  22. Loveeee a good red – lately Malbecs have been my go-to 🙂

  23. Hey Julie-
    I can’t remember if you’ve found your wedding shoes yet or not, but I was just on piperlime.com and the Badgely Mischka shoes you liked are on sale! Just in case you’re interested 🙂 hopefully they’re in your size!

  24. My favorite wine is Sauvignon Blanc. It’s dry, not oaky, smooth, and tastes like pears 🙂

  25. I love both red and white wine, but if I had to pick 1 drink as my fav, it would have to be the almighty MOJITO!! And I like mine the best (tee hee) because I don’t make them so sickeningly sweet like at the bars. I’m already thinking one day when I’m pregnant I can still have the virgin ones…pathetic, no? 🙂

  26. reds all the way. Cotes du Rhones tend to be my favorite because they’re so drinkable – but I’m not a sweet wine girl. Vinho verde is a really tasty, summery white – light and almost bubbly!

    my drink of choice, though, has to be a really well-made margarita, always on the rocks, made with Patron 😉

  27. I”m typically only into white wine, but I do like some reds if they aren’t too rich or robust. I’d probably love yours 🙂

  28. I had a not-so-great experience drinking too much wine once so I’m not a huge fan!

    I like Budweiser Select 55 Beer & Champagne with Orange Juice. Yum!

  29. My drink of choice is ice-cold, crisp water.

    Or if I am being sneaky, a caffeine free diet coke. =P

  30. Wine that tastes like juice scares me. Haha. I love white, my favorite is Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio.

  31. I prefer Red Wine. I usually stick with Cabernet. If you are looking for something that tastes like juice and champagne, definitely try Rosa Regale. It’s a red sparkling champagne. It is really good 🙂

  32. I like both varieties, but I usually stick to white because red gets me hammered with a glass. I don’t know what it is, but my alcohol tolerance is cut in half with wine!

  33. I used to only like sweet, white wine until I took a wine tasting class my senior year of college. I was finally taught how to appreciate the taste of wine! Now I only really like dry red. Who knew!

  34. Is that the sweet red? I think it is the same as Vitners Red by San Sebastian Winery in St. Augustine. Very yummy. We introduced some friends to that and they loved it.

    We drink a lot of reds and riestlings. I personally will drink most any type of wine 🙂

  35. I am a huge wine drinker…and it started years ago with the sweetness of Riesling. I worked my way through all the whites, and didn’t enjoy red at all until a few years ago. Now, I prefer reds over whites most of the time…and find that my favorite red right now is Malbec which is a blend. Delicious!

  36. I prefer dryer reds, especially a good Malbec. I like whites though when it’s hot out 🙂

    Hope you had fun at game night!

  37. I will drink both red and white wine, but I do have a preference for white.

    I would not even touch wine if you put a mudslide in front of me though… Yum!

  38. I love all wines! (in case you couldn’t tell from my blog) In the summer I tend to lean more towards white and in the colder months, red is my typical go-to. For whatever reason the end of the summer has had me leaning toward more red. Not sure what that’s about? I think wine is definitely an acquired taste. Start with the ones you enjoy and before you know it your taste buds will be hooked!

  39. I love red wines, espcially with a little dark chocolate!

  40. White hands down. At the moment I’m into Sauvignon Blancs. Reds most often trigger migraines for me which is never fun so I avoid them.

  41. I’m not a big wine drinker, but tend to prefer whites. I went to a wine/painting class and got to try out a bunch. I really like Reisling and for the red a Malbec.

  42. I like red wine and dry. Pinot Noir is my favorite. Have fun!

  43. WHEN I drink wine I prefer white wine, I’m like you I find it hard to find a red wine that I like. I do drink wine on occassion, but I am more of a bloody mary drinker. I can count that as a serving of vegetables right 😉

  44. […] love a good glass of white wine! I much prefer white wine to red because I like my wine to taste like juice and  that’s harder to come by when enjoying red […]
