Summer is approaching and Vineco has announced a new brand...Bent Grape. This appears to be similar to Winexpert's Twisted Mist line; however alcohol is listed at 6.5% for Bent Grape on the web page. I think Twisted Mist is 13-14%.

Flavours announced are Strawberry Daiquiri, and Piña Colada.

A smidge of info is available at
http://www.vinecowine.com/Bent Grape.php

Also a limited release Niagara Mist White Pear Pinot Grigio.

Huh, with an abv that low it sounds more like a normal mist kit but by the link does sound more like the Twisted Mist.

The Pina Coloda sounds pretty tasty. :dg
Wonder how soon they'll be coming out with them.

I just got the "official" word about the Bent Grape series a couple of days ago. The manufacturer tells me the Pina Colada kits will be available from them on March 15... delivery at each retail location will depend upon the retailer's / distributor's order cycle.

The launch date for the Strawberry Daiquiri cocktail kits will be announced soon!

Hope that helps.

I have never made any of those twisted mist kits, are these Bent grape kits, simalar to the niagra mist kits. I understand they are a 4 week kit, anything different about them?

or corn sugar?

These sound like an inexpensive summertime drink. They probably keep the ABV low so you can drink several by the pool in the summer without getting trashed. No worries about keeping because you drink early and often with them so they are gone before summer is done- unless you are like ArcticSid and live in perpetual winter with 2 days of mosquitos - er summer.

I just picked up and started the piña colada yesterday. I can't wait. I might bottle these into some Corona bottles and cap 'em up. Sounds like something I'd like to have out of a single serve bottle.

Bent Grape has some new "twists". One box, 2 half packs. Has anyone tried the Strawberry Dream/Lemon Kiss yet? By the way, with the Pina Colada, I added 3 extra cups of sugar to get the alcohol higher, then when drinking, I mix one frozen Bacardi Pina Colada and 1.9 litre of Orange Tropical in a pitcher. Then I put batches of half this mixture and half wine on ice in a blender.
