Cocktails Made With Wine: Red Hot Summer

Cocktails Made With Wine: Red Hot Summer
Women

In 2013, I resolved to do a few things. Some are serious, some are silly, but the most important resolution is to drink more wine. Don’t judge me.

Who doesn’t love a good glass of wine? Not only that, but it has been proven that drinking wine is actually good for you, so why should we hide our love for a good glass of vino every once in a while.

Wine is so versatile, that it can even be mixed into cocktails. So, in an attempt to fulfill my resolution, and broaden your cocktail horizons, let’s spend the week (maybe even two weeks) highlighting cocktails made with wine.

The first is so simple, and so delicious. My family drinks this cocktail for dinner every night, as a sort of play on wine spritzers:

¾ C. of Red Wine

¼ C. of Lemon-Lime Soda

Ice

Garnish: Lime Wheel

Combine all ingredients in a glass filled with ice. Stir and garnish with a lime wheel.
