Wine Bottles With Summer Wine Cocktails In The Foreground

Mint Peach Rosé Spritzer

Nothing says summer like a classic wine spritzer. This version features peaches and fresh mint, muddled together and mixed with a crisp Rosé and Sparkling wine. This drink is best enjoyed the next day, so plan accordingly to allow enough time for the flavors to mix. If you’re using a sweeter Rosé, you may not need to add all of the sugar. Adjust to your taste preference!

Mint Peach Rose Spritzer


  • 1 bottle Rosé wine
  • 1 bottle Sparkling wine
  • 4 whole sprigs of mint, plus leaves for garnish (if desired)
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 4 large peaches, pitted and thinly sliced


In a large pitcher, muddle sugar and mint until fragrant. Add the sliced peaches and Rosé wine; stir, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When it’s time to serve, slowly add the sparkling wine and garnish with mint leaves.

Mango White Wine Slushie

Mango White Wine Slushie

Who doesn’t love a refreshing, cold, fruit-filled slushie in the hot summer months? It’s even better when blended with wine! We suggest using an acidic Sauvignon Blanc, the acid balances out the sweetness of the mango.


  • 1 cup Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 cups frozen mango cubes (found in frozen fruit section of your grocery store)
  • 1 cup ice
  • Sugar or sweetener (if desired)


Combine ice and mango in a blender and pulse a few times. Add the wine, and blend until smooth. If the mangos are not sweet enough for your liking, add 1 teaspoon of sweetener at a time until your preference is reached. Serve immediately!

Sangria Mexican Mule

Red Wine Mexican Mule

Moscow Mules are a crowd favorite, especially in the summer. There’s just something about ginger beer and fresh lime juice that just makes you say, ‘Ahhhhh’ when you take a sip. We put our own spin on this classic cocktail!


  • 1 ounce red wine (We suggest a Pinot Noir or Red Blend)
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • ½ ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • Blackberries and lime wedges for garnish


Fill a shaker with ice, then add the wine, tequila, and lime juice. Shake and strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Finish with ginger beer and stir gently. Garnish with blackberries and a wedge of lime.
