Happy Hour: Near White Wine


If you are hosting a dinner or a party in the next couple of weeks be sure to have a special non-alcoholic option for your guests. It's that time of year when people have given up bad habits for Lent (I've given up clothing shopping) and drinking alcohol is always a popular vice to reject for forty days. Instead of mercilessly tempting friends with all alcoholic cocktails, offer one that is just as good without any booze. You could whip up faux champagne or a delicious take on white wine. Serve in a champagne flute or wine glass and your guests won't even notice they're sipping an alcohol-free beverage. For the recipe,
