|Hubby laughed at how Mott's for Tots is in an adult beverage. That is kinda funny!|
- 4 cups Mott's for Tots Apple Juice
- 1 (750-ml) bottle red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon
- 3 spice bags of OLD TRADITION SPICES (All natural spices; no sugar & no preservatives)
- Orange Peels; for garnish
Combine the Mott's for Tots, wine, and spice bags in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour into mugs, add an orange peel to each and serve.
I've had this adult beverage "the real" way with all the sugar and stuff. Not only does this save on calories and carbs, but it actually has a better taste to it (if you like the taste of wine). In my opinion, the sugar can be overwhelming. The light characteristic of Mott's for Tots Apple Juice provides a hint of sweet and allows the true flavors of the wine and the spices to pull through. A simple switch saves around 60 calories per glass! That is something to celebrate.
