What a time to be alive! Today I competed with a fabulous team in the Northern Lights Estate Winery mulled wine competition. Since it was international wine day, it seemed perfectly fitting and there was an awesome turn out. Everything was complete with live music and the seven competitors brought an arrangements of tasty snacks. Juliet from 101.3 The River came out on our team along with Ron from 99.3 The Drive. The recipe was from Juliet’s family and was amazingly delicious. In case you want to make it in the comfort of your own home, here’s a list of ingredients:
- Northern Lights Estate Winery Blueberry Wine
- Star of anise
- Fresh orange juice
- Orange peel
We paired our lovely brew with some snacks made with toasted rye crackers, double creamed brie and a fig preserve. It was a total success! Thanks to everyone who came out to try our recipe and support the event. We had an absolute blast!
Another great thing that was going on in the city was the FrancoFun festival. This was an event showing off french-canadian heritage and tradition, right here, in our town! I think it’s pretty cool that there is so much going on in this city and I feel so lucky to get to chase the fun! I’ll be back out tomorrow, so make sure to follow where I’m at on social media and say hi if you see me in the bright yellow FunChaser vehicle!
