Mussels in White Wine

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup St. James Winery Pioneer White Wine
  • 3/4 cup tomato and clam juice cocktail
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound mussels, cleaned and de-bearded
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. In a stock pot, combine the wine, juice cocktail, garlic and pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and add mussels.
  2. Cover and continue to boil for about 4 to 6 minutes or until all the mussels have opened. Discard any mussels that haven’t opened.
  3. Remove mussels from liquid and keep warm. Pour off liquid to leave about 1 cup. Try not to discard the garlic. Boil the 1 cup of liquid until it’s reduced to about 3/4 of a cup.
  4. Add butter and stir until butter has melted and sauce has thickened slightly. Serve mussels with sauce.
Sip Sweetly. Enjoy Responsibly.
