Home Parties for the Holidays | Tastefully Simple Giveaway

I am a big fan of Tastefully Simple. I’ve made a few purchases and have been very pleased with them, so I know that my blog readers will like them too.

My favorite products are the Bountiful Beer Bread Mix and the Perfectly Potato Cheddar soup mix. But there are so many other great items to choose from, from breads & soups to desserts, dips & beverages. There’s something everyone would like. With Tastefully Simple all of the products ship directly to the customer’s door. This allows a client to host parties in any state where they can include friends and family from anywhere in the 51 states in their guest list!

Rhea Perry, a Tastefully Simple Independent Consultant, has generously offered one lucky reader Citrus Celebration and a Samba Sangria Slush.
Citrus Celebration
Raise your glass with this delicious drink, kissed with the festive flavors of orange and pineapple. Simply add Champagne or sparkling wine and water. Then freeze in the handy bucket, and scoop into glasses. Perfect for holiday entertaining, New Year’s Eve parties and much more! Makes about 9 (8 oz.) servings.

Ingredients Needed:
1 cup water
2 (750ml) bottles Champagne or sparkling wine

Samba Sangria Slush
Simply add your favorite red wine and water! Keep frozen in the handy bucket* for a warm weather treat anytime. For easy and elegant entertaining, serve with crackers, French bread, Brie cheese and grapes. Makes 9 drinks.

Ingredients Needed
2 (750ml) bottles red wine
Warm water (about 1½ cups)

Both these drinks can be made in non-alcoholic versions as well.
