Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar Spritzer

If you know me, you know I love Trader Joes for many reasons, and here is one more:
Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar!!
I do not drink soda anymore, and I miss the fizz.  I tried some and after being off of it for so long, I am pleased to say I just can’t handle the sweetness of it anymore! (I never thought I would say that, I used to love my pop!)  But, I do miss the fizz.  When I read the back of Trader Joes Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar bottle and a suggestion for use was to add crushed ice and sparkling water for a refreshing spritzer, I got REALLY excited.  It calls for 3 Tbls of vinegar, next time I will only do 2, as I like just a hint of the citrus and vinegar tang.
 It really was refreshing.  
The vinegar contains:
Champagne Vinegar, Orange Juice, Sugar, Fresh Oranges, Muscat Grape Juice
Its suggested use on the bottle:
~as a marinade for chicken or shrimp
~tossed with melons peaches and berries for a fruit salad
~use as a dressing with 1 part vinegar to 2 parts olive oil
~use to make a tangy fruit salsa of mango, red onion, serrano chile and cilantro.
I will be trying it on my next Spinach Salad w/ Mandarin Oranges and Slivered Almonds.
If you do not live close to a Trader Joes, here is a similar product:

    that salad sounds amazing! i was eying the Orange Muscat up on the shelf recently. . . until i saw this spritzer recipe on the back. I assumed that meant I needed to be 21 to purchase! It looks so tasty, but do you remember having to show ID?

    OH Amy! We have our monthly trip to T.J. planned for then the baby wakes up from his nap here in about an hour! This couldn’t have come at a better time! Seriously. Perfection. We also stopped drinking pop (that’s what we call it down here! haha) We actually had Coke at a friends house the other day….. because we too miss the fizz. It was so so sweet and strange. I CAN not wait to give this a try!
