I was recently asked to review Black Box Wine, so of course I saw it as a way to gather a few friends! You don’t have to twist my arm to invite a few friends over for food and drink! I love a good appetizer and my friend Mishele introduced me to the BEST appetizer EVER a few years ago, so of course I had to make it for this little shindig. More on that later. I was sent 3 boxes of wine, even though one box is all you need! Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and a small dessert wine, Moscato. That’s a LOT of wine! Good thing it keeps for over a month after opening.
Their 3 Liter boxes are equivalent to 4 bottles. I really like the idea of not having bottles……..bottles tip over, they break, sometimes hard to open and I learned that this is 1/2 the carbon footprint of glass bottles. Who knew? I’m thinking wine in a box is the perfect wine for camping, outdoor concerts, BBQs. Who wants to worry about breaking a glass bottle?I gathered my wine glasses, sparkling water and the Black Box Wine and made my beverage “center”. Before I even thought about taking up close photos of the food, it was gone……..or maybe I was. Actually I only drank one glass, I was just too busy enjoying myself eating the yummy food, visiting with friends and enjoying a glass of wine to think about taking more photos. This is the only one I got of the food table…….yes it’s blurry……..no I wasn’t tipsy. I was laughing at something. This isn’t a photo of the infamous bruschetta I make that I learned from Mishele, but it looks pretty close just to give you an idea. Looks so fancy, but really………it’s comfort food.
- You’ll need one baguette, either pre-sliced or you can slice your own. I don’t toast mine before like you would for a tomato bruschetta.
- Place as many as you can on a cookie sheet and place a small amount of Brie cheese on top.
- Set under the broiler until the bread is starting to toast and the cheese is starting to bubble.
- Pull it out of the oven and place a spoonful of corn salsa on top of the brie. I buy mine at Trader Joe’s and it’s delicious!
These babies will be gone before you know it. Even my 14 yr old LOVES these!
If you’re an adult……those appetizers go great with this Sauvignon Blanc fromBlack Box Wine.
It’s time to think inside the box. Available in ten delicious varietals and two sizes (3L and Tetra), Black Box Wine will have you ready to lose the bottle! Black Box Wines is perfect for all your summer gatherings!
