Sipping Japanese Choya in the Park

It’s so awesome to finally begin to have a taste of spring outside! On my recent trip to World Market–my favorite store, of course– I was pleased to find that they have an alluring array of picnic-sized eats and drinks from all over the globe. And I do love eats and drinks! There among a bevy of dried Spanish chorizo, German cookies, French jams and bellinis were these lovely little bottles of Japanese Choya Wine with a bonus plum inside.

I thought it would be perfect to pair with a delicious to-go pack of Dolmas by Stuff’d. I really love stuffed grape leaves and these are very good. The Choya tastes more like sake than wine but I found it be very refreshing. Warning!!! The plum inside the bottle is very strong…the 50ml serving of Choya isn’t likely to cause intoxication, but the wine soaked plum definately will!
