|It’s time to toast graduation for the elementary through high school set. You can have the Champagne; they can toast it with a glass of grapy bubbly in a Champagne-like bottle. Bottles of Welch’s Sparkling Juice Cocktail (in white or red grape juice) have been all dressed up with a tasseled mortarboard key ring as a memento (for those who haven’t graduated recently, a mortarboard is the “cap” in “cap and gown”).
Tasting exactly like fizzy versions of the regular juice, these sweet, fruity, non-alcoholic beverages are an alternative to the Shirley Temple, and a soda alternative to adults wistful for that Welch’s grape juice taste. The grown-up, wine-style bottles add to the festivities. The cost: $3.49 per bottle. Be sure to serve in wine glasses! Long past graduation that we are, we enjoyed our trip down memory lane with a glass of each.
Toast to the graduate: plenty of bubbles, no alcohol.
