Jalapeno Wine Shrimp Appetizer

One of our most popular, award-winning wines, is our Jalapeño Wine!  It is exactly what it sounds like, fermented Jalapeños!  At the winery we like to have people save this one for last if they are trying it during their tasting, and we also include a sample of Bloody Mary mix with it!  While the jalapeño wine is great to use in Bloody Mary’s it is also very fun to cook with as well.  We have even made a list of 10 things you can do with our jalapeño wine.

This past Sunday we competed in a Bloody Mary contest in Milwaukee, and received two awards!  Part of the contest was to garnish the Bloody Mary with some goodies.  We choose to garnish ours with Shrimp, Cheddar Cheese, Cornbread poppers, and of course a jalapeño slice!  The secret to our shrimp? It was also marinated in the jalapeño wine!  Below is the recipe for our spicy and delicious jalapeño wine shrimp and the link above will get you our winning Bloody Mary Recipe!
