For all the ladies working nine to wine… the weekend is here! Pass the glass (or bottle).
If you, like us, are wondering just how it’s possible that we’ve entered yet another cold spell… stay in and keep warm with these tasty wine cocktails.
Red Hot Summer
We know, the name is such a tease. But we promise Summer pretending is easier with this drink in hand.
3/4 cup of red wine of your choice.
1/4 cup of lemon-lime soda.
Combine ingredients in a glass filled with ice and stir. Garnish with a lime wheel and commence daydreaming of warmer days.
For anyone who had one of those weeks, wine + tequila is the answer.
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 1/2 oz pinot noir
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 oz agave nectar
2 oz grapefruit soda
Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake and strain into a glass, garnish with a lime wedge and get the pyjama party started!
The Beauty Elixir
To accompany those spa night beauty treatments we all feel much in need of by Friday, mix this concoction in a martini glass and get to pampering yourself.
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz strawberry puree
1/4 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz rose sparkling wine
2 cucumber slices
To make simple syrup, mix equal parts hot water and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Muddle the cucumber in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and all ingredients except for wine. Shake and strain into a glass, then top with sparkling wine.
