Give Your Wine a Cocktail Makeover!


Want to dress up your glass of wine? For a tasty treat, try making simple champagne and wine cocktails!

Wine: Ruffino Prosecco

Turn it into: Sparkling Sunrise cocktail

Add 1/4 teaspoon of sweet balsamic vinegar (ones from MODENA Italy are best as they’re sweetest) to the bottom of a flute.
Pour in 1/2 teaspoon of St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
Add a twist of orange

Wine: Moschofilero (a Greek white wine)

Turn it into: Herbal Delight

Start with 4-5 ounces dry white wine
Add a splash of tonic water
Add chopped fresh basil
Add chopped fresh mint
Serve on the rocks

Wine: Shiraz (We like 2010 Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet)

Turn it into: Shiraz Sangria

4 to 5 ounces wine
Add a splash of cognac
Add a dash of orange juice
Add muddled raspberries and blueberries
Serve on the rocks


Sip and savor as you enjoy the last few weeks of summer!!

    Hi Leslie,
    With the Sparkling Sunrise Cocktail, would apple cider vinegar do just as well? Or would you advise against that?
    Best regards,
