Punch Up Your Menu With Large Format Drinks
Jam Jar Wines Introduces Two New Cocktails-For-A-Crowd
The popularity of punches, bowls and pitchers on cocktail menus is increasing. Many accounts are realizing the benefits of these large format drinks: a lively, enjoyable experience for the customer and a quicker pour for the bartender. To celebrate this trend, Jam Jar wines has created two new large format recipes perfect for the cold-weather season ahead.
Made in South Africa from premium Shiraz and Moscato grapes, the Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz and Jam Jar Sweet White are perfect additions to winter drink menus. With a natural sweetness, they negate the need for added sugar, while their lively, fruit-forward profiles provide a bold and exciting flavor to seasonal beverages.
