WIne COcktails (2)

Although it may not feel like springtime yet with the frigid snow lingering, we’re right around the corner from 70 degree sunny days, birds chirping and blooming flowers everywhere. So to get us on the spirit, I think it’s the perfect time to bring out my collection of the best spring wine cocktails. All fruity, classy and refreshing, these 3 recipes are a surefire crowd pleaser for any spring occasion!

Mimosa – 2 servings

1/2 cup dry sparkling wine or champagne

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Splash of Grand Marnier

Directions: Pour the sparkling wine into 2 champagne flutes (¼ cup each). Next, add in the OJ (also ¼ cup each). Top off each glass with a splash of Grand Marnier.

 

Red Sangria – about 6 servings

1 bottle of dry red wine (Rioja, Cabernet, Zinfandel, Merlot)

½ cup brandy

¼ Cointreau

2 Tablespoons of sugar

2 sliced oranges

1 cup of slices pineapple

1 sliced green apple

1 thinly sliced lemon

1 cup of seltzer water or ginger ale

Directions: Stir together wine, brandy, Cointreau and sugar in a large pitcher. Add in fruit (oranges, pineapple, apple, lemon). Let this mixture sit for two hours. Right before serving, add in the seltzer water or ginger ale.

 

Bellini - 2 servings

1/2 cup dry sparkling white wine or champagne

¼ cup peach schnapps

1 cup frozen peaches

1 cup ice

Directions: Divide the sparkling wine between 2 glasses (¼ cup each). Next, blend together the frozen peaches, ice and peach schnapps in a blender. Top off each glass with ¼ cup of the frozen peach mixture. Stir gently and serve.
