A Festive, Non-Alcoholic Way To Ring in the New Year

Here's to the new year with a taste of something sweet and tart.

Is it really just a day away from 2010? Seriously?

I’m not necessarily ready for a new year to begin, not when it seems like this past one just zoomed by at warp speed before I could barely catch my breath.

If I could, I’d like to rewind it back to, say, maybe summer to do all the things I had hoped to do but never got around to doing. Things like read more books, cook even more fabulous new dishes, host a few more dinner parties at home, clean out my closet, organize my desk better, go for a hike, and write more letters on actual stationary to be mailed with a real stamp.

Since I can’t turn back time, I’ll do the next best thing — usher in 2010 with welcome arms, eager anticipation and boundless hopefulness.

And I’ll start by drinking a toast with a sample of the new Knudsen Sparkling Pomegranate drink. With no added sugar, artificial flavors or preservatives, this ruby-red, bubbly drink has a delightful taste. It’s not nearly as sugary as carbonated grape or apple juices. It’s sweet, yet faintly puckery, too.

A 25.4-ounce bottle retails for about $2.49 at natural food stores and grocery stores nationwide. An 8-ounce glass has 120 calories.

I raise my glass to all of you. This was a challenging year for all of us, what with the economy doing a number on our livelihood and pocketbooks.

Here’s wishing you all a brighter 2010 that brings continued success, good health, many laughs, and of course, great eats and drinks.

Happy New Year! May it be the best one yet!
