National Drink Wine Day (We Didn’t Need An Excuse!)
Celebrate National Drink Wine Day with our selection of boozy, wine-based beverages. From light, refreshing spritzers to cocktails with more of kick, grab a glass, uncork your favorite vino, and unwind. Cheers!
White Wine Margarita
Tammilee Tips combines two of my favorite libations — margaritas and wine — into one refreshingly sweet concoction. Not a fan of lime margs? Tweak the recipe and swap the limeade for your favorite frozen concentrate.
Loaded with heart-healthy red wine and plenty of nutritious fruit, I feel no shame sipping on the Best-Ever Sangria from Iowa Girl Eats. Make a double batch and invite your girlfriends over for happy hour!
Melon Basil White Wine Spritzer
You don’t need to lounge around a pool to sip on this gorgeous, mouthwatering Melon Basil White Wine Spritzer from The Sweetest Occasion (although it certainly doesn’t hurt!). The basil adds a subtle, unexpected kick to an otherwise fruity cocktail.
San Francisco Sangaree
The San Francisco Sangaree from Homemade Hooplah pulls double duty in my house. The muddled cherries and wine satisfy my sweet tooth, while the boldness of bourbon makes this a not-so-girly drink even my husband can enjoy.
Sparkling Lemon Rosemary Cocktail
Host a sophisticated brunch by serving this refreshing Sparkling Lemon Rosemary Cocktail from Food Fashion and Fun. A blend of crisp lemon and champagne make a tasty alternative to a standard mimosa, while a touch of bourbon adds a little extra zing. Bottoms up!
Raspberry Red Wine Slushy with Chocolate Whipped Cream
The blanket of snow covering the Midwest ground this weekend got me thinking about snow cones. But I found something even better — and much more suited for my grown-up tastes — with this Raspberry Red Wine Slushy with Chocolate Whipped Cream from Maebells. Yum!
White Wine Mojito
Turnip The Oven combines bubbly club soda with wine and sprigs of mint for a delightful White Wine Mojito that’s sure to tickle your fancy. Essentially a white wine spritzer, this classic cocktail can be gussied up with your favorite garnishes, from cucumbers to fresh fruit.
Sweet Tea Sangria
Summer may be a few months away, but it feels right around the corner with this tasty Sweet Tea Sangria. The Wicked Noodle adds succulent slices of fresh peaches to this wine-infused sweet tea for a refreshing drink so southern, I fancy myself a steel magnolia! Cheers, y’all!
Lime Rose Spritzer
The sweet, aromatic flavor of elderflower liqueur puts this Lime Rosé Spritzer from Hungry Girl Por Vida on your must-try list! With its gorgeous blush color, this cocktail is easy, boozy, beautiful!
Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles
If you find yourself with leftover wine (I know … leftover wine? Does such a thing exist?), do yourself a favor try these luscious, no-bake Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles. With just a hint of red wine to complement the richness of the dark chocolate, Well Plated by Erin gives you the perfect way to “wine-d” down your celebration of National Drink Wine Day!
