On New Year’s Eve, just hours before we were to turn into pumpkins, Andy and I realized we had no sparkling grape juice in the house! After dinner I drew the short end of the stick and left to make an emergency run. This was the beautiful view that greeted me.

This made scouring the aisles of 3 different stores and then giving up in despair and almost leaving with 1 bottle of kosher sparkling grape juice and 1 bottle of sparkling apple cider only to find that someone had abandoned the last bottle of Welsh’s sparkling grape juice in the canned veggie aisle (!!) totally worth it.

    Oh? Then maybe we’ll give that a try next time.

    LOL yes, exactly!

    I feel like we don’t get that much color here compared to Houston — maybe because not as much smog — so it was a nice surprise.

    I almost forgot the traditional sparkling cider as well.
    We found sparkling white grape juice at Target. It was Archer Farm. Not too bad. Happy New Year!
