Wine, Barbecue, and Glass

This is a great way to combine barbecued chicken, wine, and fused glass serving dishes.  Mid spring  is a great time to spend more time outdoors than in. The sun is warm, the grass is green, the hummingbirds are feasting on flowers and nectar, and it is time to sit outside and fire up the grill to enjoy it all! Don't forget to drink some chilled wine and beer.

1. First, pick the food.  For something a bit different yet classic for the grill, a chicken kabob was chosen.  On the kabob was chicken, sweet onion, and tomatoes glazed with a Caribbean jerk sauce! Doesn't that sound great! We are not done!

2 Next the all important wine or beer. Today a semi-dry Riesling was chosen.  This white wine does fabulously well on its own while watching the grill. It also mixes wonderfully with chicken, vegetables, and a spicy and tangy jerk sauce. It allows you to enjoy both the sweet and spicy favors.
