9 Wine cocktail recipes perfect for winter

Download our e-book for 9 wine cocktail recipes. Each recipe utilizes a different style of wine from classic Cabernet Sauvignon and medium-bodied Pinot Noir to fresh rosé and sparkling Prosecco. See which one might be a good fit for you: 

  1. Winter Reviver: Feeling the cold weather blues? Warm up with this comforting blend of rosemary, honey, and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

  2. Communard: Communard is the red wine variation of Kir, a popular French cocktail made with a measure of crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur). It’s also referred to as a Cardinal and is traditionally made with Beaujolais, but any Gamay or light red will do. The color and flavor are well-suited for the cold winter months. 

  3. Pear & Clove: Fresh, fruit and easy to shake together, this drink is a must-try. The hints of brandy and cloves make it cozy enough for winter, while the pear and lime juice make it peppy enough for your next party.

  4. Layover in Lyon: Lillet Rouge, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, is known for its ruby red color, intensely fruity flavor, full-bodied texture, and bitter finish. When paired with rosé and a splash of soda water, Lillet Rouge shines. For this cocktail, you can substitute another bitter liqueur like Vermouth, Amer Picon, or even Port.

  5. Vanilla Sangria: With tastes of vanilla, pear and cinnamon, this is sangria like you’ve never had before. On a cool winter day, it warms you up from the inside-out with it’s comforting flavors.

  6. Mimosa with a Twist: If you’re trying to take your Mimosa up a notch, 1 oz. of vodka should do the trick. Strip the vodka out and you have a classic Mimosa.

  7. Dose of Autumn: With the cool, crisp taste of apple, this is sure to be your new favorite fall and winter drink.

  8. Masquerade: Whether you’re at the ball or on the couch, enjoy this richly-flavored drink with all the mystery of a masquerade. The Grand Marnier and berry jam take this winter cocktail to a sophisticated level.

  9. Spicy Noir: With a little spice and a splash of citrus, this drink is sure to wake you up—whether it’s a cold winter evening or a warm summer night.
