Yvettes Monthly Mixer Copa Di Vino NRA 2012

Copa brings you fabulous premium wine by the glass without waste, glassware, or time needed to uncork, measure or pour! Copa Di Vino is the first wine by the glass bottled directly into the glass allowing you to conveniently drink wine anywhere with ease!

Enjoy Copa while chillin’ at the beach, at a BBQ, or even during a Hotel stay. Why pay extra for that mini bar when you can bring your own! With Copa’s easy peel-off foil opening and 100% recyclable plastic cup you eliminate the need to buy and clean glasses, monitor pour amounts or have to throw out any unused or bad wine.

Copa Di Vino is distributed in more than 40 states nationwide and has been branded at Getty Museum, Chicago’s Ribfest Festival and Six Flags. Copa! was served on Bourbon Street for the 2011 Mardi Gras celebration and is now the wine of choice for the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings.

Jim Beam’s Red Stag

Red Stag DrinksI ended up at the Tilted Kilt the other night to grab a drink and midway through my 4 hour stay with a friend a couple of the Tilted Kilt girls came up to us and asked if we wanted to try Red Stag.  The first thing that popped into my friend’s head was, “That’s Kid Rock‘s drink!” I just  looked at her like she was crazy.   Yet she was right,  Jim Beam partnered with several musicians such as Kid Rock and Montgomery Gentry to help spread the word about the new Bourbon.

(Quick Fact: Bourbon is the same as whiskey!  What makes Bourbon is the location in which it’s made and that is only in one place…the southern United States.)

For those who don’t like the straight up flavor and bite that whiskey has may enjoy this cherry infused bourbon from Jim Beam.   I had my first taste of the whiskey mixed with Coke.  It was a very smooth drink without the harsh edge that whiskey can have.  It also wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet for it being combined with a mixer like Coke.   I don’t mind a good whiskey and this one could top my list.
