Paulk’s Pride Muscadine Juice
We love the fragrance of muscadines and the juice really captures it. The purple has a complex wine-like taste, while the white (which is actually a pretty gold color) is more straightforward and may be a better choice for those new to the flavor of muscadines. The juice is $6.99 per 25-ounce bottle. paulkspride.com. Read more here.

The Chinese name is “luo han guo.” It’s also known as “fruitmayor” and sources claim it’s anywhere from 150 to 300 times sweeter than granulated sugar. SPR-FIELD uses it in their Eureka Tea series available in 10 flavors including chamomile, Earl Grey and Orange Cinnamon. $40 for two boxes of six fruit. Eureka Tea is $20 for two boxes of 10 bags. http://fancy.com. Read more here.

Low Country Fish Fry from Canewater Farm in Darien
It’s a well-seasoned mix of organic non-GMO corn with pepper salt, paprika and more. There are no preservatives, so you need to keep it refrigerated. It’s great on fish, as intended, but works just as well on chicken, shrimp or oysters, and makes a tasty addition to hush puppies. $6.99 per 1 3/4 pound bag. canewaterfarm.com. Read more here.
Root7 Himalayan salt cups
The glasses are translucent pink. Very pretty. Put the shot glasses in your freezer for a few hours, then when your guests arrive, set the glasses out on the serving board. Fill them with your best tequila and offer a wedge of lime if you wish. There’s something about the salt – we wish we knew what – that mellows out that tequila. $35 for the boxed set of four glasses and serving board. amazon.com. Read more here.
Asi Tea from Yaupon Tea Company
Ginger Tumeric Green Tea from Verdant Kitchen
