Summer Loving with Seagram's Escapes

 
 
 
Summer is finally here!  It looks like the warm weather is here to stay, and I can finally put up the sweaters and start enjoying the outdoors. One of our favorite summer activities is grilling out. We love to fire up the grill and relax on the patio with an adult beverage. 
 
 Recently, Seagram’s gave me the opportunity to review Seagram’s Escapes line of drinks. 
 
 

 

Classic Lime Margarita
Blackberry Breezer
Strawberry Daiquiri
Kiwi Strawberry
Sangria
Raspberry Lemonade
Calypso Colada
Aloha-Tini (I love the name)
Watermelon Splash
Peach Fuzzy Navel
Jamaican Me Happy
Black Cherry Fizz
 
and 6 frozen flavors:
 
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
Frozen Sangria
Frozen Pina Colada
Frozen Blue Hawaiian
Frozen Margarita
Frozen Jamaican Me Happy
 
 
I sampled all of the flavors in bottles (not all at one time). My favorite was the Aloha-Tini. I really wanted to try this one because I thought the name was so much fun! I was worried that I wouldn’t like it because it has starfruit and pineapple flavors in it. I am not a big pineapple juice fan. OMG! It was great. It was light and refreshing. I loved it!
 
 
My second favorite was the Black Cherry Cherry Fizz. It was super delicious and easy to drink. Even Chicken Legs liked this one.
 
 
I immediately froze the Jamaican Me Happy. I just LOVE the name. It sounded like the perfect summer drink! I was right, it was delicious! Making the frozen drinks couldn’t have been any easier. Just put the pouch in the freezer and freeze for eight hours. Voila! A frozen cocktail without a blender or any cleanup (win, win!).


These would also be good for tailgating (I’m always thinking about tailgating!). Toss the frozen pouches into the cooler and they should be perfectly slushy by the time you get to the parking lot. Touchdown!

 
 
I then decided to have a few friends over and share the joy. I iced down the bottles and threw the frozen pouches into the freezer a few hours before everyone arrived. We grilled out burgers and sampled the Seagram’s Escapes. It was so much fun. Everyone loved them. I especially appreciate how easy it was to set up the party drinks. Since I didn’t have to worry about the drinks, I had plenty of time to make some finger foods and chips & dip before the guests arrived.


Overall, I really enjoyed Seagram’s Escapes. They are so convenient--just ice them down and enjoy! I am not a big beer fan. I usually drink wine or a mixed drink, but those drinks are kind of a hassle at parties and the beach/lake. Seagram’s Escapes definitely fit into my busy on-the-go lifestyle. They have so many wonderful flavors and all I have to do is twist off the cap and enjoy. That is good thing, because there is nothing worse than getting to the party and realizing that you forgot the wine bottle opener, mixers, or cups! (Not that I would know anything about that. *wink*)

Seagram’s Escapes will be my go-to drink this Summer!

  2. I just bought a couple of flavors the other day...there was a huge display at Wal-Mart that sucked me right in! They are fun to have pool-side...not too strong and refreshing! I haven't seen the frozen ones yet.

  3. I love these. Peach and Sangria are my favorites. My husband doesn't even complain too much about them. That reminds me....I need to put a few more in the frig to chill. :)

  4. Peach Fuzzy Navel is my favorite. I grab these on the clearance rack at Kroger's whenever I see them. I'm too cheap to buy them full price!
