Add some heat to your cocktail with Jalapeno wine.
The white wine is infused with serrano and jalapeno peppers, giving it a slightly spicy kick. Galena Cellars says it’s perfect served chilled with appetizers like cheese and crackers, or used as a base for another cocktail that packs a spicy punch, such as a Bloody Mary.
f you want to try Galena Cellars Jalapeno Wine but you don’t live in the area, you can purchase a bottle online. The cost is $15.99 before shipping.
If you are considering making an order, you might also want to check out some of Galena Cellar’s other unique wines. The also offer Rhubarb Wine ($14.99), Peach Wine ($14.99), Blackberry Wine ($14.99) and Spiced Apple Wine ($14.99). How perfect does that last one sound for fall?
Galena Cellars isn’t the only winery that has delved into jalapeno-infused wines.
Potter Wines, for example, sells Jalapeno Wine, Chipotle Jalapeno Wine and an incredible concoction known as Jalapeno Wine Lemonade (which also comes in Strawberry and Watermelon flavors). As the name suggests, this unique drink is made with jalapeno wine and lemonade. (Really, that’s not a far cry from a sangria-like wine mix that’s popular in Spain and Uruguay.)
And some of these beverages have inspired the makers to give them names that are, well, a little edgy!
