Wine Cocktails

Wine and cocktails can be a welcome adults-only addition to any get-together. Our bar basics guide provides a good foundation with ideas about how to stock your home bar with cocktail basics, from the necessary gadgets to the liqueur staples. The real fun is in the recipes. For spring and summer gatherings, use our fruity sangria, lemonade, agua fresca, iced tea, frozen margarita, or martini recipes. In cooler months, try our warm cider-based punch recipes, winter-fruit sangria, or drinks using other fall and winter fruits. Never worry about running out of drinks during a party with help from our beverage calculator. We spell out how much to have on hand based on the number of guests attending. If you don't have time to make your own drink recipes, purchase a selection of beer or wine to have on hand. Our beer guide and wine guide will help you choose a good mix. We also have a resource to help you pair your grilled dinner with the perfect cocktail for the most ambitious hosts.
