22 Aug Wine Cocktails Are Everything We Need Right Now
What a curious Summer it has been for us here in Southern California. Yeah we’re spoiled with like, 300 days of sun each year and we freak out when the temperature drops below 70 and the rain comes down on us, which it has quite a lot this Summer (though unfortunately not nearly enough to alleviate our drought problem). But now that we’re finally getting some 90+ degree weather, we’re desperate for some ice cold drinks. Make that ice cold cocktails, because alcohol makes everything better.
Wine cocktails are in right now. They’re not too heavy on alcohol (it won’t drain us in the heat), there are all kinds of recipes, and they’re easy to make at home. No need for a licensed bartender, just trust in your own favorite flavor combinations of wine, fruits, spirits, juices, sodas, and even herbs!
However if you do want some inspiration and variety of delicious wine cocktails, go over to StellaRosa.com/cocktails. This brand, Stella Rosa, is a popular brand of semi-sweet, semi-sparkling wines, making them the perfect mixer for your wine cocktails. Currently, these are our favorites:
